Tampa Bay Lightning Deadline Day News Tracker

Posted March 03, 2017

Streit has five goals and 16 assists in 49 games this season - his fourth with Philadelphia.

Dealt Valtteri Filppula, a fourth round pick, and a conditional seventh round pick to the Philadelphia Flyers for defenseman Mark Streit.

The Lightning had included fourth-round and seventh-round picks in their deal with the Flyers to offset Philly taking on the a year ago of Filppula's contract in 2017-18.

Streit wouldn't remain with the Bolts for long as Yzerman shipped him to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a fourth round draft pick in 2018. Boyle was eventually traded to Toronto Monday on his own for minor league forward Byron Froese and a second-round pick. He was sent to Philly to open a little cap space for the team next season and also provides Philly some help offensively - as he has scored 34 points, with 27 assists with the Lightning.

Tampa Bay Lightning Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman had a few more plans up his sleeve before the 3:00 p.m. NHL Trade Deadline. This means that the Flyers are forced to protect Filppula in this year's expansion draft. Fleury has said all the right things while receding into the background and Rutherford has maintained he believes the Penguins will need Fleury if they want to become the first team in almost 20 years to win back-to-back Cups. If all conditions are met, the Flyers will have 12 picks in the upcoming draft, the most of any team.

The Flyers (29-26-7, 65 points) sit three points behind the Panthers (29-23-10, 68 points) and New York Islanders (29-22-10, 68 points) and all three teams are trying to catch the eighth-seeded Toronto Maple Leafs (28-21-13), who hold the final playoff spot in the East with 69 points. He earns $5.25 million this season and is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Bellemare signed his deal for $1.45 million a year.
