Tampa Bay Lightning forwards Tyler Johnson and Alex Killorn are each day-to-day with undisclosed injuries, general manager Steve Yzerman told the Tampa Bay Times on Sunday.

Johnson and Killorn were injured Saturday in the Lightning's 3-2 preseason win against the Florida Panthers.

Forward Nikita Kucherov (lower body) was held out of the game Saturday for precautionary reasons and forward Cedric Paquette (left foot) remains day-to-day. Each is expected to practice Monday.

The Lightning open the regular season Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers at Amalie Arena (7:30 p.m. ET, TVA Sports 2).

"I'm hoping that everyone will be ready for Thursday," Yzerman said.
