Dramatic turn of events for the Lightning just hours before the series against the Maple Leafs, and fans can't believe it

As we reported a few days ago, it seemed that the Lightning's big acquisition at the trade deadline, Tanner Jeannot, would miss the series against Toronto.

He was supposedly seriously injured in the leg, and Jon Cooper had a "high level of concern" that Jeannot might have to miss the series against Toronto.

We're talking about a player capable of scoring big goals, tailor-made for the NHL playoffs.

After all, Tampa Bay paid a high price to acquire Tanner Jeannot: defenseman Cal Foote (a first-round pick) as well as a protected top 10 first-round pick in 2025, a second-round pick in 2024, and 3rd, 4th, and 5th round picks in 2023.


In short, we have just witnessed a huge turnaround.

No one expected it, but a dramatic turn of events! Jeannot practiced with his teammates this morning and everything indicates that he will be in uniform for Game #1 of the Toronto-Tampa Bay series. Whoa!

See the pictures:


You can imagine that this is causing a lot of reaction from fans, both those of the Lightning (who are happy) and those of the Maple Leafs (who are less happy).

Do you think Tampa Bay bluffed by exaggerating Jeannot's injury?

Do you think Toronto will finally win a playoff round?


The matchup gets underway tomorrow at 7:30 pm for Game #1.
