Lightning's Steven Stamkos (lower body) will play Thursday against New Jersey
According to The Athletic's Joe Smith, Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper confirmed that center Steven Stamkos would play in Thursday's Game 1 against the New Jersey Devils.
Stamkos missed the final three games of the regular season with a lower-body injury. However, he said that he was good to go after Wednesday's practice, so he should be a full-go as the Lightning host the Devils in Round 1.
