Lightning's Nick Paul: Lights lamp twice in win
Paul scored two goals, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Canadiens.
The 28-year-old snapped a brief four-game point drought with the performance, and both of Paul's tallies came as a result of him being in the right place at the right time to bang home a rebound. He set a new career high with 17 goals in 80 games last season, but Paul is on track to shatter that mark in 2023-24 as he's already tickled twine seven times in 13 contests.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Dream season continues
Paul scored a goal in Thursday's 6-0 win over San Jose.
He put the Lightning up 5-0 at 7:29 of the second period when he punched in a rebound off a Steven Stamkos shot. Paul's dream season continues. He has a goal in back-to-back games and three in his last four. Paul is tied with Brandon Hagel for second on the team with five goals.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Another goal from forward
Paul scored a goal Tuesday in a 3-0 win over Carolina.
Paul scored late in the third period on a one-timer from the left circle that beat Pyotr Kochetkov on the far side. A minute later, he picked up a fighting major when he dropped the gloves against Jack Drury. Paul has four goals, two assists, 13 shots and seven hits in seven contests so far.... See More ...

Lightning's Nick Paul: Continues to surprise on power play
Paul scored a goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in a 4-3 win over the Canucks on Thursday.
Coach Jon Cooper continues to send Paul over the boards and straight to the front of the net on the first power-play unit, and the results have been impressive. All three of Paul's goals this season have come with the man advantage. Overall, he has five points (four on the power play) in five games, as well as seven hits, three blocks and 10 shots -- he will remain a valuable fantasy play as long as he continues to get the plum PP1 assignment....

Lightning's Nick Paul: Two goals, assist in opener
Paul tallied a pair of power-play goals and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators.
Paul tied the game 2-2 in the second period, stuffing in a loose puck on a power play, before giving Tampa a 4-3 lead later in the frame with a second marker on the man advantage. The 28-year-old tallied 17 goals (four on the power play) and 32 points in 80 games with the Lightning last season. While he'll typically play on the third line, Paul's role on Tampa Bay's potent top power-play unit should offer some continued scoring upside.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Snaps 30-game goal drought
Paul scored the game-winning goal Thursday in a 4-2 victory over the Maple Leafs in Game 5.
Paul was in the slot when a forechecking Mikey Eyssimont popped the puck out and off the skate of a Leafs defender straight to the center, who caught Ilya Samsonov out of position. Paul hadn't scored in 30 games (26 regular season, four postseason) and hasn't been great in this series. He, Jon Cooper and the rest of the Bolts will be hoping Game 5 is a turning point....

Lightning's Nick Paul: Seven hits in Game 1 win
Paul laid seven hits in Tampa's 7-3 win over Toronto in Game 1 on Tuesday.
Paul ended the regular season on a 12-game scoring slump, but the Bolts don't rely on him for offense. On Tuesday, Paul played 16:37, including 1:10 shorthanded. And his hits disrupted a Leafs squad that simply had no comeback, especially against the Bolts bottom six.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Thriving with Bolts
Paul registered an assist to complement five hits in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Sabres.
Paul's breakout campaign continues, as he's posted career highs in several offensive categories, including goals (17) and total points (30) through 60 games. He also tied a season high with those five hits in the latest contest and advanced to a plus-14 rating. Remember, the Bolts signed Paul to a seven-year, $22.05 million contract last summer, and that seems to have been a major boon to his confidence as he finishes out his eighth season.... See More ...

Lightning's Nick Paul: Not playing Saturday
Paul (upper body) is not in the lineup versus Dallas on Saturday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Lightning's Nick Paul: Not playing Thursday
Paul (upper body) did not take the ice for warmups, indicating he'll miss Thursday's game versus the Avalanche, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports.
Paul practiced Thursday, but it appears he'll need to sit out at least one game. The Lightning will opt to play seven defensemen with Cal Foote drawing into the lineup to cover for Paul's absence. The 27-year-old forward's next chance to play is Saturday in Dallas. Per the team, Paul is considered day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Doubtful Saturday
Paul (upper body) is doubtful for Saturday's tilt in Dallas, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports.
Paul sat out Thurday's game versus Colorado and did not practice Friday. Paul has 16 goals and 26 points in 50 games this season, but is pointless in his last five games.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Practicing Thursday
Paul (undisclosed) is practicing Thursday, according to Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com.
Paul left Tuesday's game in the second period versus the Sharks and did not return. This is a good sign for the 27-year-old center to return to the lineup Thursday versus Colorado. Paul has 16 goals and 26 points in 50 games this season but is pointless in his last five games.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Leaves Tuesday's contest
Paul (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game versus the Sharks in the second period, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports.
Head coach Jon Cooper had no update on Paul's status after the game. The 27-year-old has filled the third-line center spot pretty well, though he's now gone five games without a point. If he can't play Thursday versus the Avalanche, the Lightning will likely either recall a forward or use seven defensemen, with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare likely to pick up extra minutes in either situation....

Lightning's Nick Paul: Face-off mastery
Paul won 13 of 17 face-offs Saturday in a 5-2 win over the Kings.
He has one goal and one assist in his last nine games, but Paul delivers in other ways. His ability at the dot is valuable, especially late in the game in the defensive zone. But his fantasy value is limited to specialty formats.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Two points against Columbus
Paul scored a power-play goal and an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.
It was the first multi-point effort from the 27-year-old in over a month, as Paul had only three goals and four points over his prior 15 games. As long as he keeps a spot on Tampa Bay's second power-play unit he'll have some fantasy appeal, but his third-line role at even strength makes him a risky lineup option in shallower formats. On the season, Paul has 15 goals and 24 points in 39 games, and he needs two more goals for a new career high.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Nick Paul: Snaps five-game scoring drought
Paul provided a goal in a 4-1 win against the Blackhawks on Tuesday.
Paul's marker came at 18:54 on an empty net. The 27-year-old has 14 goals and 22 points in 36 contests this season. He had been held off the scoresheet in his previous five games.... See More ... See Less
