Vladislav Namestnikov is "felling better" according reporter Erik Erlendsson, but he's still a game time decision.

Namestnikov has had a nice sophomore season for the Lighting, posting 10 goals and 26 points over 54 games this season. Though what's interesting is that he's shooting at a 13.9% clip as a 23-year-old. His point totals may be low but that goal scoring ability leaves something to be intrigued by.

He has been much more successful in 2015-16 thanks to his increased role on the team and spending plenty of time alongside Steven Stamkos hasn't hit either.
