ELMONT, N.Y. - Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev underwent surgery in New York on Thursday to repair two fractured bones in his left leg suffered Wednesday against the Rangers.
Sergachev fell to the ice as he went in to deliver a hit on New York forward Alexis Lafreniere, but Lafreniere braced for the contact and delivered a reverse hit that knocked Segachev off balance.
