Coach Jon Cooper expects Maroon (undisclosed) to return to the lineup Saturday against the Flames, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. Maroon missed Thursday's loss to the Blackhawks due to a lingering injury, but he's evidently already put that issue behind him. The big-bodied winger is expected to skate on Tampa Bay's fourth line during Saturday's clash with Calgary.
Maroon (undisclosed) won't be available for Thursday's clash with Chicago due to a lingering injury, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. Maroon's issue doesn't sound overly serious, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Tampa Bay hold him out for a while to ensure he's 100 percent healthy once the playoffs roll around. Another update on the burly winger's status should surface once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.
Maroon scored a goal Thursday in a 3-1 win over the Oilers. Maroon has points in two straight, but just 19 (seven goals, 12 assists) in 53 games.
