Mark Barberio is expected to head back to the press box in Game 5 as Matt Carle tags back in on Sunday night against the New York Rangers.

Mark Barberio might end up playing in Game 4 on Friday.

Matt Carle (undisclosed) is out and it remains to be seen if the Tampa Bay will still go with seven defensemen. If the Lightning do, then Barberio will be the one assuming the vacant roster spot. We probably won't know for sure until right before the start of the game though as the Lightning intend to include 21 players in their pregame warmups.
