Enemy Blog: Head over to Running With The Devils for your opposition blog coverage

Record: Lightning (9-7-2) Devils (9-7-1)

Previous games this season: None

Game time: 7:00pm EDT on CW44

Big win on Thursday night over the Pens. We are on a six game home win streak and tonight is another night at home. From what I remember from last season over the Devils, the Devils had our number. I think they won 3 out of the 4 games we played. I'm not sure how they are playing this year because I haven't paid attention, but their record is pretty much the same as our if that is any indication.

On the injury news for the Lightning, Ryan Malone is backin the lineup tonight. And since our defence always needs help, some positive news is that Mattias Ohlund skated with the team for the first time today since his surger in a red no-contact jersey. It will still be a week or two at least before he plays but this is encouraging news. Even if you hate him because he's rather slow, Ohlund still helps our defence.

Random stat that is blowing my mind: Marc-Andre Bergeron enters the game tonight tied for second in the NHL among defensemen for points

And interesting note by Mike Corcoran's twitter is that there is a LA Kings scout in attendance tonight at the game.

Go bolts
