TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Ryan Callahan will miss Game 6 of the team's playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

The team said Monday night that Callahan, who has no goals and three assists in 12 postseason games, was sent to Tampa General Hospital after experiencing abdominal pain earlier in the day.

Team spokesman Bill Wickett said Callahan's return to the ice is ''undetermined'' at this time.

The Lightning lead the series against Montreal 3-2. Game 6 is Tuesday night.
