Tampa Bay Lightning star Brayden Point is a game-time decision for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday, head coach Jon Cooper announced, according to team beat reporter Chris Krenn.

Point was absent from morning skate, and Corey Perry took his spot on the top power-play unit. The exact reason for his questionable status in Game 3 is unknown. Point suited up for the first two contests against the Colorado Avalanche after missing the previous two series with a lower-body injury.

The 26-year-old played almost 18 minutes in Game 1 and logged 16:40 in Game 2 against the high-flying Avs. He has two goals and three assists in nine contests this postseason.

Point leads the league with 30 playoff goals since the 2020 bubble. He exited Game 7 of the first round against the Toronto Maple Leafs with an apparent leg injury after getting tangled up along the boards.

Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy also didn't participate in morning skate, but he'll get the start despite surrendering seven goals on 30 shots in Game 2.

The Bolts are down 2-0 in the series and will look to hold off the Avalanche in Tampa Bay. Puck drop is at 8 p.m. ET.
