Mark Barberio will pair with Matt Carle on Tuesday night against Boston to form Tampa Bay's third defensive unit.

Barberio has a prime opportunity to earn consistent playing time with Victor Hedman out, however he comes in with just one point, and a dozen hits and blocks in 19 games this season. Carle has 13 points, 22 PIMs and 71 blocks through 44 games this season. Both are difficult to recommend for your fantasy squad.

Mark Barberio is hoping to iron out a spot on Tampa Bay's blueline now that Radko Gudas is sidelined for the rest of the regular season.

"That's what happens throughout the season. Guys go down, there's injuries or guys get sick, so that's an opportunity for me to come in and get the job done," Barberio said. "It's unfortunate. You never want to see a teammate go down, but that's part of the game and that's why we have good depth on this team." However, that chance won't just be handed to him, as he will have to compete with rookie Nikita Nesterov and whoever the Lightning may bring up as a right-handed replacement. In 18 games this year, Barberio has one assist, 17 shots, 11 blocks and 12 hits.

Mark Barberio will draw the short straw as Radko Gudas is expected to return to Tampa's lineup on Friday night in New Jersey.

Barberio lacks for much of any fantasy value, but Gudas is as rugged and physical a blue liner as they come. He leads the team in hits with 91 and PIMs with 34. His hits are also good for 18th most in the NHL.

Gudas has what's being reported as a stomach virus, so Barberio will take his place. Barberio has no fantasy value to speak of.

Mark Barberio will draw in for Eric Brewer against Minnesota on Saturday night.

Assistant coach Rick Bowness noted that this will be Tampa's ninth game in 15 days and of needing to find a "spark" and some "fresh legs". Subbing in the 24 year old Barberio for the 35 year old Brewer ought to accomplish just that as he'll line up next to nearly 24 year old Andrej Sustr.
