Lightning get an extreme scare in Game 4

The Bolts are all kinds of banged up right now.



The Tampa Bay Lightning have been anything but fully healthy for their Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the rival Toronto Maple Leafs, having lost defenseman Erik Cernak after a dirty elbow from Toronto's Michael Bunting, while also having been without cornerstone defenseman Victor Hedman for Game 2. 

And while they were fortunate to avoid a devastating injury to sniper Brayden Point in Game 3, they may have just suffered another devastating setback. Defenseman Mikhail Sergachev took a snapshot from Ryan O'Reilly right on the outside of his knee, and he literally had to crawl back to the bench in extreme pain and immediately went to the dressing room. 

However, if you can believe it, he's already returned to action. 

Sergachev is one of Tampa's most valuable players, having played in 37 minutes in the overtime loss in Game 3. Thankfully, he appears to be no worse for wear in what could have truly been a serious injury.
