But immediately, you're concerned [with] the impact he'll have on their power play."Tampa Bay is 10-for-59 (17 percent) on the power play in 20 postseason games but has not converted since Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Islanders (0-for-14).Stamkos participated in drills with the top power-play unit during training camp in July but did not participate in a full practice until after the Lightning arrived in Toronto, the hub city for the Eastern Conference through the second round of the playoffs, on July 26. If that time comes, he'll be put in to play, not just sit on the bench."Stamkos, who was second on the Lightning this season with 66 points (29 goals, 37 assists) in 57 games, last played on Feb. 25.
