The Tampa Bay Lightning is losing another attacker for a significant period of time.

Head coach Jon Cooper announced Friday that forward Valtteri Filppula, who left Thursday night's loss at home to Toronto, has a non-displaced fracture of his right ankle, and will miss three weeks.

In 56 games with the Lightning this season, the Finnish Olympian has scored 20 goals and 21 assists.  However, his injury will cause him to miss the Sochi games.

Goalie Ben Bishop is still listed as day-to-day with what the Lightning are calling an upper body injury
