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

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
