With a win in Game 6 on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS), Tampa Bay would be back in the Stanley Cup Final for the second straight season.Video: Stamkos, Killorn help Lightning rout Islanders, 8-0But the Lightning are not fooled into thinking what happened in Game 5 sets the precedent for what will happen in Game 6."Sometimes you're on the other end of that too," defenseman Luke Schenn said. Besides Cernak in Game 5 against the Islanders, David Savard was out the first three games of the second round against the Hurricanes with an upper-body injury.They have used seven defensemen in the playoffs."The guys were going pretty good there for the last number of games," Schenn said. The longer you go it's tough to stay healthy every single game for the playoffs."However, an 8-0 win allowed the defensemen who typically log heavy minutes, especially when they have to make up for players missing time because of injury, a reprieve.Hedman played a playoff-low 20:43, including 4:27 in the third period, when the Lightning were down to five defensemen with Rutta out.
