Garon was seen moving gingerly after lunging his pad out to his left to stop an Evgeni Malkin chance on a power play about a minute earlier. Anders Lindback replaced Garon, who had given up one goal on 13 shots.
Garon is likely to at least miss Tuesday night's game against the New Jersey Devils. The Lightning are expected to promote Cedrick Desjardins from the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League in Garon's absence.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
