Game Preview - TB vs. FLA

After losing in overtime in Sunrise, the Bolts will be at home for the backend of a home and home series versus the Panthers. Although the Lightning lost the first game in OT, they did receive a point, and moved into a tie with Atlanta for first in the Southeast. A win tonight coupled with an Atlanta loss in Carolina, would give the Lightning sole posession of first in the Southeast.

Additionally, during pre-game, Vinny Lecavalier will be awarded this mont's Mark Messier Leadership Award. "This award is presented every month and at the end of the season to the player who exhibits superior leadership qualities on and off the ice. The winning player will be chosen each month by Messier, the most recognized captain in professional sports history, with consideration given to both athletic performance, the ability to influence teammates, commitment to community and professional attitude on and off the ice in terms of being a positive role model." Good job Vinny!
