from the Tampa Tribune,
Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Mathieu Garon is expected to miss three to four weeks with a slight tear of his groin muscle, general manager Steve Yzerman said Wednesday.
Dustin Tokarski will be called up from the Lightning’s minor league affiliate in Norfolk, Va., and join the team in Washington, D.C., for its game Thursday against the Washington Capitals, Yzerman said.
Garon was injured 3 minutes, 54 seconds into Tuesday’s 7-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators. Dwayne Roloson entered in relief and gave up five goals on 33 shots.
Garon, who is 23-16-4 this season, had been carrying the load in goal as Tampa Bay fought back into playoff contention. He has a 2.85 goals against average and a save percentage of .901.
