Ross Colton News
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ross Colton (upper body) will be back from a one-game absence Friday versus St. Louis. The 28-year-old has managed to have a decent season in limited playing time, collecting nine points in 18 outings despite averaging only 11:27 of ice time. He has found it tough to crack the top six, but Colton has been a regular on the power play and it's helped him to generate some momentum offensively. In that sense, he returns in a great matchup, because the Blues have the third-worst penalty kill in the league.
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ross Colton provided very late drama in Game 2 against Florida on Thursday, scoring a 2-1 game-winner with just four seconds remaining in regulation. He was on target with his second shot of the game and also recorded two hits in 13:25 of ice time. Colton has had a habit of popping up with goals and he now leads the team with five markers this postseason. The 25-year-old has also picked up two assists in nine games.
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ross Colton had a very busy night against Toronto on Sunday, finishing a 7-3 victory with two goals, a game-high five shots and five hits. He ended up with the game-winning goal after Tampa had shocked the Maple Leafs with three goals inside the opening eight minutes and Colton completed his two-goal outing with an empty-netter. The 25-year-old had a solid 22-goal campaign during the regular season and has now started to heat up in the playoffs as well, having gotten three goals in the last two games.
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ross Colton had a big game against Chicago on Friday, finishing a 5-2 victory with two goals and one assist. He scored both of his goals in the second period to break a 2-2 tie and his assist came in the final seconds when Brandon Hagel scored an empty-netter against his former team. Nicholas Paul posted three assists, so this was a good night for Tampa's third line all around. Colton has struggled to even hit the 10-minute mark in recent times, but he ate up 13:10 of ice time on Friday and instantly delivered. He's now on 30 points for the season in 64 games with 121 shots and 120 hits.
