  • Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Stays with play for first goal of playoffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/28/16) Filppula found the back of the net in Wednesday's Game 1 loss to the Islanders.

    Filppula was held pointless in the first-round series against the Wings, but jumped off to a fast start in the semifinals after collecting his own rebound for the score. A third-line center, Filppula should be considered an X-factor in the series. He's proven to be streaky, but has the two-way acumen to make plays on both ends of the ice. In order to win the series, the Bolts will need secondary scorers like Filppula to be consistent. Until that happens, though, fantasy owners are advised to look in another direction.

    Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Posts pair of points Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/16) Filppula scored a goal and collected an assist in Thursday's win over the Devils.

    With the pair of points, Filppula reached the 30-point mark in what was his 75th game of the season. The veteran center has largely disappointed in his 10th NHL season, falling significantly short of his point totals of 48, 58 and 66 in his last three full NHL seasons.

    Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Will return Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/16) Filppula (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Monday against the Maple Leafs, Michelle Gingras of Fox Sports Sun reports.

    Sidelined since March 15 with the upper-body issue, the Lightning will welcome the 32-year-old back to Monday's lineup as the team continues to jostle for playoff position. While his 28 points, 90 shots on goal through 69 games don't really stand out, Filppula's 18:22 of average ice time keep him fantasy-relevant in some leagues. He skated on alongside Alex Killorn and Steven Stamkos on the top line again Monday, so there's no reason to believe the Finnish forward won't resume the same role in his return to the lineup.

    Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Won't play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/16) Filppula (upper body) is out of the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Islanders, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Filppula did skate with the team Friday morning, but did not participate in line rushes and took minimal contact, indicating that he may not be ready to go for Saturday's game either. It has been a disappointing season for the center as he's notched just 28 points in 69 contests, well below his previous campaigns. Additionally, the veteran is currently in the midst of a 16-game goal drought, further limiting his fantasy value.

    Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Making progress

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/16) Filppula (upper body) is progressing toward a return to action, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.

    While Filppula won't play Tuesday against the Red Wings, the report suggests that the forward could emerge as a game-time decision in advance of Friday's game against the Islanders.

  • April 3, 2015: Bolts' Filppula Still Mired In Slump
    Filppula gathered a power-play assist in Thursday's loss to the Senators.Points have been extremely scarce for Filppula of late, as the forward has collected a goal and three assists since the beginning of March. A drop in ice time hasn't accompanied the drop in productivity just yet, but it's tough to justify keeping him active until he starts scoring with more regularity.
