The Tampa Bay Lightning may have made one of its biggest saves of the preseason.
The Lightning claimed goaltender Kevin Poulin off of waivers from the New York Islanders, giving them a bit more insurance behind Ben Bishop and giving backup Andrei Vasilevskiy time to heal from his surgery to remove a blot clot in his collar.
Because to the move, the Lightning released Ray Emery from his tryout.
Poulin, 25, has some 50 games of NHL experience. He is 18-25-3 with a 3.07 goals against average and a .899 save percentage. He had one year left on a $600,000 contract.
