Notes:

- I wrote this yesterday afternoon, so I don't know who will get the start in goal for the Bruins. I would expect to see Manny Fernandez get the start since Tim Thomas got the start last night.

- The Lightning's #1 and #2 goaltenders are both hurt.

- Jeremy Jacobs can't like this: You can get 2 tickets, 2 beers, 2 hot dogs, and a parking pass to a Tampa Bay Lightning game for $39.

- The Lightning are 14-21-8 under Rick Tocchet who took over for the fired Barry Melrose (5-7-4).

- Game starts at 5:00, open thread starts at 4:00
