the Lightning already this season, and with an almost unchanged lineup headed to the ice for Carolina tonight, we’ll see how that extra ice time benefits the team, especially with youngsters getting quality NHL minutes.
Petr Mrazek will be back in goal tonight after a promising performance but disappointing loss to the Jets. He’ll try to make a statement against a team that’s historically been a burden to him — he’s 1-8 with a 3.95 GAA in 12 games against the Lightning in his career.
Someone who is good against the Lightning: Justin Williams. His 36 points against the Lightning lifetime is tied for the second highest total he’s put up against any team. Hopefully his swing at Top Golf yesterday won’t affect his shot and will instead translate to more success for Williams on the ice tonight.
Scott Darling took shots this morning at practice (as in pucks, not spirits), which is reassuring, but no word on his imminent return just yet.
Here are those lines you’re quite accustomed to by now:
Warren Foegele – Jordan Staal – Justin Williams
Micheal Ferland – Sebastian Aho – Teuvo Teravainen
