Victor Hedman scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

Hedman's goal came midway through the final frame and cut his team's deficit to just two goals. He finished the evening a plus-2 with four shots on goal and two hits in just under 25 minutes of ice time. The 5 five goals and 32 points in 52 games this season, including 14 points in his last 13 games.
Feb 9 - 11:57 PM

Jonathan Marchessault will be scratched against Montreal on Tuesday night.

Marchessault still hasn't played since Jan. 27th, a span of four games including tonight. He has six goals and 11 points in 26 games this season, but not much of a rotation in the forward corps.
Feb 9 - 6:50 PM

Ben Bishop will be between the pipes versus Montreal on Tuesday night.

Bishop has enjoyed plenty of success against the Canadiens during the regular season, with a 10-1-3 record and a 1.62 goals-against average in 15 games.
Feb 9 - 4:32 PM

Matt Carle is expected get back into the fold on Tuesday night at Montreal.

He has been a healthy scratch in 10 of the past 13 games, including the last four, but should get back in with Jason Garrison on the sidelines with a lower-body injury.
Feb 9 - 4:24 PM

Jason Garrison (lower body) won't play against Montreal Tuesday night.

He will be re-evaluated when the team gets back to Tampa Bay on Wednesday, but for now he is considered day-to-day. Garrison was injured Monday versus Ottawa.
Feb 9 - 4:18 PM

Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy made 24 saves during the Lightning's 5-1 loss to the Senators in Ottawa Monday night.

Vasilevskiy wasn't nearly as impressive Monday as he was on Jan. 28, when he stopped all 30 shots he faced in a 1-0 shutout of the Toronto Maple Leafs. After Monday, Vasilevskiy's record is 8-5-1 and his goals-against average is 2.73. He's usually the backup to Ben Bishop, and suffice it to say that he does not merit fantasy consideration.
Feb 8 - 11:01 PM

J.T. Brown was Tampa Bay's lone scorer during the Lightning's 5-1 loss to the Senators in Ottawa Monday night.

Brown interrupted Ottawa's barrage of goals with his sixth of the season at 17:25 of the first period, cutting the Senators' lead to 2-1. But it was all Ottawa after that in this lopsided affair.
Feb 8 - 10:49 PM

Jason Garrison suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

The Bolts just announced that Garrison's night is over. They'll probably provide an update on his status after the game. He should be considered day-to-day right now. We'll provide an update on his status as soon as the Lightning shed some light on his injury situation.
Feb 8 - 9:39 PM

Jonathan Marchessault will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Senators.

The 25-year-old has been scratched in four of Tampa Bay's last six games. He has six goals and 11 points in 26 games this season. Look for Matt Carle to be scratched on defense.
Feb 8 - 7:29 PM

Anton Stralman (flu) will suit up in Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

He was considered a game-time decision, but he's taking part in warmups with his usual defense partner Victor Hedman. The 29-year-old has eight goals and 26 points in 51 games this season.
Feb 8 - 7:13 PM

Anton Stralman (flu) will be a game-time decision on Monday night.

The Tampa Bay Lightning will have 21 players taking the pregame warm-ups.
Feb 8 - 6:19 PM

Erik Condra is looking forward to his first game back in Ottawa on Monday night.

"You get the giddys a little bit, you get excited," said Condra, who played five seasons with the Senators before joining the Tampa Bay Lightning. "You remember the drive from downtown to (the arena) and then just looking at all the sites and places you have been."
Feb 8 - 4:42 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy is expected to start Monday night against Ottawa.

He was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate, so he's probable to start. That will place Ben Bishop between the pipes for Tuesday's contest at Montreal.
Feb 8 - 12:25 PM

Tyler Johnson appears to be getting his groove back.

"I feel good. I still think there is room for improvement, but I feel my body is feeling as good as it has all season," Johnson said. "I'm starting to get into the groove and starting to be able to play." He has looked more like his speedy self in two games following the All-Star break and he has collected two goals and two assists over those matches.
