Edmonton (SID) - The Tampa Bay Lightning have to make the final series in the North American professional ice hockey league NHL against the Dallas Stars to finish without captain Steven Stamkos. "The next time we see him on the ice, hopefully it will be at the Stanley Cup presentation," said coach Jon Cooper. "He did everything to come back. He can't go any further," said Cooper.
Stamkos made his comeback in the third game of the best-of-seven series after a six-month injury break and scored a goal straight away. Overall, he was on the ice for almost three minutes, he was not used in games four and five. After a conversation with Stamkos on Sunday, the team decided not to use the 30 year old Canadian anymore.
At the beginning of March, Stamkos had to undergo an operation due to an injury to the core muscles, the rehab was problematic, he was significantly longer than expected.
Tampa is still missing a win for the second championship after 2004, in the series it is 3-2 for the Florida team. Game six takes place on Monday (local time) in Edmonton.
