McDonagh (lower body) is not expected to play Tuesday versus the Sabres, Erik Erlendsson of reports.

McDonagh was deemed a game-time decision earlier Tuesday, but he'll need to miss at least one more contest before returning. With McDonagh out, Cal Foote and Zach Bogosian will remain in a third-pairing role, while Mikhail Sergachev slots into the top four. The Lightning's next game is Thursday versus the Canucks.
