The Tampa Bay Lightning could be without forward Tyler Johnson when they play host to the New York Islanders on Saturday.

Johnson left Friday night’s 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals following his first shift of the game, which lasted 48 seconds.

The 25-year-old had a shot on goal and threw a hit on Nicklas Backstrom before leaving the game.

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper did not have an update on Johnson postgame.

Friday night’s game was Johnson’s second since returning from an upper body injury, which sidelined him for three games.

Johnson has four goals and 11 points in 21 games this season.
