Nikita Nesterov has been improving his play.
The Lightning want to see what they have within the organization first before they start searching for a replacement defenseman. "Nikita has done very well, and right now he deserves to play more and let's see how he holds up. After six games he's gotten better from game one to game six," said Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman. "So we are pleased with that and that takes a little bit of the pressure off of going to find a guy. Let's see how Luke does and then if we need somebody at some point we can go into (the trade market)." Injuries to Matt Carle and Radko Gudas will give Nesterov and Luke Witkowski a chance to prove they belong at the NHL level. Jan 20 - 11:29 AM
