Lightning's Purcell day-to-day with upper-body injury

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced Friday that right wing Teddy Purcell is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and will miss the team's preseason game Friday against the St. Louis Blues.

Brett Connolly, who scored twice Thursday against the Nashville Predators, will replace Purcell in the lineup and play on a line with Valtteri Filppula and Alex Killorn.

Purcell is not expected to miss any significant time.

"He's not feeling well," coach Jon Cooper said. "He showed up [Friday] and I don't know if it was respiratory or I have no idea, so maybe if it was a regular-season game who knows, maybe he would play. So he went to go get checked out at the [doctor] and even before he comes back [from the doctor], I just wanted to put somebody else in."

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
