Lightning_Marty_St_Louis_2013Martin St. Louis’ status remained unclear late Wednesday as the team awaited test results. Bringing up Connolly, however, suggests St. Louis is likely to sit out, even though the injury is not considered long term.

“From all indications it is nothing alarmingly serious,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “But we’ll wait until we get the doctor’s report. And I don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but much like the (goaltender Ben) Bishop situation, it’s rest and precaution, and when we get a report we’ll find out.”
