Martin St. Louis day-to-day for Lightning

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Martin St. Louis was not on the ice for practice Wednesday and is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. His status for the game Thursday against the Minnesota Wild is uncertain.

"From all indications it's nothing that is alarmingly serious," Lightning coach Jon Cooper told reporters. "We'll have to wait for the doctors to give us a report."

St. Louis took a shot by Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty off his foot in a 5-1 win by the Lightning on Tuesday. He scored twice and finished with three points on the night. In the process, he passed 900 career points as a member of the Lightning, the first player in franchise history to do so. His 10 points this season are second in the NHL in scoring to the Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby.

Valtteri Filppula took St. Louis' spot on the Lightning's first power-play unit during practice.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
