Lightning defenseman has been out since March 25

by @NHL /

PITTSBURGH -- Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman returned to the lineup for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday at Consol Energy Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

Stralman, who hasn't played since March 25 because of a fractured left fibula, was on the ice for the optional morning skate Monday after practicing Sunday.

He did not speak to the media Monday. Coach Jon Cooper had said Sunday that Stralman was getting closer to returning.

"Stralman is definitely day-to-day now, and that's great news because he is an extremely important player on our team," Cooper said. "So it's kind of going to be all [up] to [Stralman] here now, how he's feeling."
