Report: Lighting Without Callahan in Game 6

Scott Levy/NHLI via Getty Images(TAMPA BAY) -- The Lightning will be without Ryan Callahan in game six as Tampa Bay seeks to end Montreal's season.

Callahan underwent an emergency appendectomy Monday and will be out indefinitely. 

The Lightning are up three-two in the series, though they have lost the past two games to the Canadiens. Tampa Bay lost game four 6-2 and game five 2-1. 

Callahan has only three assists in the postseason so far, but was a major offensive force this season contributing 54 points.

According to the Tampa Bay Times:

Callahan didn't practice Monday, with the team saying he first felt abdominal pain during the afternoon. He was admitted to Tampa General Hospital, where he was diagnosed with acute appendicitis. Callahan was in the emergency room by 9 p.m. and out by 10 p.m., and in stable condition, team spokesman Bill Wickett said.
