Tokarski held out for precautionary reasons
The two Lightning goaltenders here at the Florida Rookie Tournament are Jaroslav Janus and Pat Nagle. Not with the team is highly-regarded prospect Dustin Tokarski. According to Lightning goaltending coach Frantz Jean, Tokarski has a muscle pull and has been held out as a precaution. Frantz said Tokarski was on the ice earlier today and is expected to be ready when training camp opens next week.
Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
