Lightning beat writer for the Tampa Tribune Erik Erlendsson joined The Booger and Ryan Show to talk about the Lightning’s first preseason game.

Jonathan Drouin is going to be out for 3-4 weeks and Erlendsson that’s from a hairline fracture in his thumb. Expect him to be back 4-5 games into the season.

Erlendsson said that the Lightning are a viable Stanley Cup contender because they are much improved and the Eastern Conference is very weak this year.
