The Lightning defenseman was hurt on Wednesday night and will miss four-to-six weeks ... which could put him out for most of the first round of the playoffs. The Lightning are definitely a contender this season in the Eastern Conference, so this is pretty brutal for them.
Palat out 2-3 weeks, Paquette out 10-14 days and Coburn out 4-6 weeks #TBLightning— Erik Erlendsson (@erlendssonTBO) March 12, 2015
Yzerman expects Coburn could be back by start of first round. Getting Carle back soon eases the blow a little. #TBLightning— Joe Smith (@TBTimes_JSmith) March 12, 2015
Coburn missed 24 Flyers games this season with a broken foot on two different occasions, but this apparently is a totally different injury. Tough break.
