The power forward was reportedly limping after take a puck to the foot during Friday's game. We'll see if the 33-year-old is good to play against the New York Rangers on Monday. He has nine points, 35 PIM, 38 hits and 47 SOG in 23 games this season, although he only has a goal since Steve Stamkos suffered that major injury.

Ryan Malone was the only Tampa Bay Lightning forward to find the net as they ground out a 2-1 SO win against the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday.
Even so, the Bolts managed 45 shots on goal, which might have been their way of saying that they don't "need" Steve Stamkos. Malone ranks high on the list of players who are serious variables in the post-Stamkos era (however long that lasts).

Ryan Malone scored a goal while playing in his 600th career game on Saturday.
"Growing up you always dream about playing in this league, but you never think about the number of games you will play," Malone said.

Malone is 33 years old and it certainly looks like he has more milestones ahead of him. That was his second goal and eighth point in 16 contests this season.

It looks as if Ryan Malone will skate on Tampa's third line Saturday against the Red Wings.
He was on the wing alongside Nate Thompson and B.J. Crombeen in Saturday morning's scrimmage. That's a far drop from where he was playing on the top unit featuring Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis. As long as Alex Killorn is doing the job on the Bolts' top line, Malone will have limited fantasy value.

Ryan Malone contributed two assists in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over Florida.
Malone is an injury risk but assisting on goals by Martin St. Louis and Steve Stamkos should get the attention of fantasy owners. He has one goal and five assists 11 games to go with 27 shots, 22 hits and 28 penalty minutes. Malone may be worth taking a flier on if you are hurting from injuries.
