J.T. Brown, who hasn’t played since Game 2 of the opening round back on April 15, has returned to the Tampa Bay Lightning lineup for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The 25-year-old Brown had been out of the lineup for the last eight games with an upper-body injury. The Bolts are still without Steven Stamkos and Anton Stralman for the series opener versus the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In 78 regular season games, Brown scored eight goals and 22 points.
