Lightning recall Brown, Korobov from Syracuse

One day after losing star forward Steven Stamkos and a pair of defensemen to injuries, the Tampa Bay Lightning recalled forward J.T. Brown and defenseman Dmitry Korobov from the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League on Tuesday.

Brown, 23, has four goals and 10 points with a plus-5 rating in 13 games for the Crunch. He was signed by the Lightning as a free agent on March 28, 2012. In five NHL games (all during the 2011-12 season) he has one assist and a plus-2 rating.

Korobov, 24, has six assists in 13 AHL games and leads the Crunch with a plus-7 rating. Last season he ranked second in the AHL among rookies with a plus-20 rating. Korobov helped lead Syracuse to the 2013 Calder Cup Final, recording a goal and two points in 17 games.

Stamkos and defensemen Sami Salo and Keith Aulie were hurt in a 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins. Stamkos is set to have surgery on a broken right tibia and is out indefinitely. Salo sustained a lower-body injury and Aulie an upper-body injury.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
