CHICAGO (AP) - Tampa Bay forward Nikita Kucherov is participating in the Lightning's morning skate before Game 6, two days after he was injured early in Game 5.
Lightning goalie Ben Bishop also skated at the United Center on Monday, several hours before the Lightning face elimination against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Kucherov is the second-leading scorer in the Stanley Cup playoffs with 22 points, but he was hurt in the first period of Chicago's 2-1 win at Tampa Bay on Saturday when he crashed into the post.
Kucherov collided with goalie Corey Crawford and fell awkwardly into the post while trying to score. The Russian skated off slowly and didn't return.
Bishop played in Game 5 after missing Game 4 with an undisclosed injury.
