The Lightning lineup took another hit Tuesday with the indefinite loss of left wing Ryan Malone. Defenseman Victor Hedman, meanwhile, is listed as day-to-day with an undisclosed upper-body injury. Both were injured in Monday's victory against Philadelphia on hits by the Flyers' Zac Rinaldo. Malone, who will be placed on IR and miss a minimum of seven days, returned on March 7 after missing 13 games with an undisclosed lower-body injury. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound forward was being used in more of a checking-line role, playing with Nate Thompson and B.J. Crombeen. Malone was playing a puck at his feet when Rinaldo charged in and leveled him at center ice in the third period.
