Lightning Updates

Here's some between game info:

Ryan Craig is skating with the team, but is not taking part in any hitting. He is still recovering from a herniated disc in his lower back. Dan Boyle looks to be only days away from returning. He has been taking part in full practices, including passing and wrist shots. Look for him to return to the lineup probably in the next week or so.

The Michel Ouellet experiment seems to be going nowhere. He is now practicing on a line with Gratton and Darche, while Ward has moved up to play with Richards and Hlavac. I liked the way Ward played on the Richards line at the end of last season, and expect he will be able to produce.

After 2 shaky games in net, Holmer came back with a solid effort against Atlanta. He currently is 4-1 and has a .894 sv% and 2.62 GAA. The save percentage is a bit deceiving due to the fact that Holmer isn't seeing very many shots. He has the GAA under 3, and that's a very good thing!

The Bolts head to Washington to take on the Caps Wednesday, then are back home Thursday to face the red hot Flyers.
