Nick Paul probable for Game 4 in Stanley Cup Final

Given Jon Cooper’s silence over Paul’s injury, it makes sense that Paul is formally labelled as probable. In Game 3, Paul left the ice, came back, and then left again; as a result, Game 4 will probably see Paul dealing with some lingering soreness. Paul will likely try his luck tonight since, as they say in hockey, everyone is playing with some discomfort at this stage in the season.

Left winger Nick Paul of the Tampa Bay Lightning is not officially listed as questionable for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Colorado Avalanche, but we will do so based on the reports from practise.

In the opening frame of Tampa Bay’s triumph in Game 3, Paul departed the ice after being hit and fell awkwardly. He did come back into the game and contribute a goal to the team’s 6-2 victory, but he finally left the ice once more. Several accounts state that he appeared to be uncomfortable when participating in team practise, but he doesn’t have a team tag. How much time he spends on the ice appears to be the main question. The Lightning will probably curtail his minutes if he’s not at 100 percent.

Paul’s absence might not have a significant influence on the Lightning’s game plan because Tampa has an abundance of talent at the left wing position.
