Canisius' Conacher gets huge shot with Lightning

By Mike Harrington

Former Canisius College star Cory Conacher had a big day Monday at Tampa Bay Lightning camp -- playing left wing on a line with one of his idols, Bolts center Vinny Lecavalier.

Conacher has 12 goals and 28 points in 36 games this season for Syracuse and is one of just two AHL players in Tampa Bay's camp. Barring something unforeseen, he's making the team. Especially since he was AHL MVP last year with 39 goals and 80 points in 75 games for Norfolk, which rolled to a Calder Cup title.

Play the video below to hear Conacher's chat with reporters Monday in Tampa.
