The next time Stamkos and St. Louis will be back here in Raleigh it will be for the all-star game at the end of the month. But before we can get to that, we face the Hurricanes tonight after the loss last night to the Devils. Roloson is back in net again after letting in four goals on nine shots. According to Lightning Strikes, Nate Thompson and Mike Lundin are both game time decisions.
The Hurricanes sit in 9th in the conference just 9 points back from the Lightning. We've only played them once this year back in December in Tampa where the Bolts won 5-1. The Lightning look to bounce back from their loss against the last-places Devils last night before returning back home to face Columbus on Tuesday night.
The Hurricanes are also trying to bounce back from a loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night. Cam Ward is in net for the Canes and Eric Staal is looking to extend his 7 game point streak.
- Dwayne Roloson will start in net
