Coleman scored an empty-net goal on two shots and added two hits in Monday's 4-1 win over the Predators. Coleman deposited his third goal of the year into an empty cage late in the third period. The 29-year-old forward has accumulated a respectable seven points, 23 shots and 12 hits through nine contests so far. Offense runs deep for the defending champions, making Coleman a viable fantasy option even in a third-line role.
Coleman recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Friday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings. Coleman set up Barclay Goodrow for the empty-net goal in the third period, which was the latter's second tally of the game. The 29-year-old Coleman has flown under the radar a bit early in 2020-21, but he has two goals, four assists and 21 shots through eight games. He's added 10 hits and a plus-5 rating, but a lack of power-play time lowers the ceiling for Coleman's potential.
Coleman notched two assists in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Red Wings. The 29-year-old had been held off the scoresheet for three straight games coming into this one, but Coleman was able to break out with helpers on goals in the first and second periods. Despite his mini-slump, Coleman has a solid two goals and five points through six games as he fills a secondary role in the potent Tampa offense.
Head coach Jon Cooper said that Coleman was scratched for Saturday's loss to the Blue Jackets because he missed a team meeting, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. Cooper relayed that he didn't know why Coleman missed the meeting, but team rules dictated that he'd be benched for this contest as a result. The 29-year-old likely will be back in action for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes. Through three games this year, Coleman has posted two goals and an assist.
Coleman (coach's decision) isn't on the ice for warmups, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Saturday's clash with Columbus, Lightning Radio reports. With Coleman out of the lineup, Alexander Volkov will hop onto the Lightning's third line against the Blue Jackets. Coleman's scratch from Saturday's contest has been deemed a coach's decision, so he'll hope to get back on bench boss Jon Cooper's good side ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Hurricanes.
