Tampa Bay Lightning
goaltender Mathieu Garon
will miss the next 3-4 weeks due to a slight groin tear suffered Tuesday night against the Ottawa Senators
Garon left Tampa Bay's 7-3 loss just 3:54 into the game when he fully extended to make a save. Dwayne Roloson
replaced Garon and allowed five goals on 30 shots.
The Lightning will call up goaltender Dustin Tokarski
from Norfolk of the AHL.
Roloson is having a nightmare of a season. He is 8-13-2 with a 3.82 goals-against average and .878 save percentage.
The 10th-place Lightning are four points behind the eighth-place Winnipeg Jets
in the Eastern Conference playoff race with a game in hand.
