LIGHTNING (13-15-1) at MAPLE LEAFS (15-12-2)

TV: RDS, TSN, SUN

Last 10: Tampa Bay 4-6-0; Toronto 4-4-2

Season series: This is the second of three games between the teams this season, and the only one to be played in Toronto. On Feb. 19, the Lightning beat the Maple Leafs 4-2 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Big story: Can the Lightning build off their big win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday? Or will the Maple Leafs snap out of their five-game winless skid?

Team Scope:

Lightning: No one is saying much about the lower-body injury sustained by team captain Vincent Lecavalier, but all that's known for sure is that it will keep him out for at least three more games. Lecavalier did not travel with the team on its three-game road trip, which starts Wednesday in Toronto.

Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman told the Tampa Tribune that it's "reasonable" that Lecavalier could be out as long as three weeks.

The Tampa Bay Times reported Monday that Lecavalier sustained a broken bone in his left foot during a game against the Florida Panthers on March 12, at or near the same spot he sustained a bone bruise in the foot when he was hit by a shot by teammate Sami Salo during a game Feb. 2.

Lecavalier wouldn't say what his exact ailment was, but said it's keeping him limited to off-ice activities.

"It's more of a waiting game and waiting and rest it," he told reporters in Tampa on Monday. "I can still do some other stuff. Skating right now is not a possibility."

Maple Leafs: Toronto is winless in five games (0-3-2) and has given up 16 goals in that span. Coach Randy Carlyle said he'd like to see his two goalies, James Reimer and Ben Scrivens, step up their level of play.

"We'd like for someone to show us they're going to grab the net," Carlyle told the Toronto Sun. "We're no different than anyone else. We at one point thought of alternating them, 'This is your start tomorrow and it's the other guy’s the next day.' Go with the opposite until they prove that out. Those are all the things you run through the back of your mind. If you make that decision, go with it, and if not, wait for the guy to emerge. Before Reimer was hurt, we thought we were pretty close to that."

Reiner said he was on board with whatever the coaching staff decided.

"There are pros and cons with both [a set rotation and a game-by-game rotation]," he told the Toronto Sun. "We're competitors, but we have a good relationship. We're going to keep pushing each other."

In the five-game slide, Reimer is 0-1-2 in three games, and allowed eight goals on 76 shots. Reimer is 0-2-0 and let in 10 goals on 81 shots.

Who's hot: Lightning forward Steven Stamkos scored his League-best 21st goal in the final seconds of Tampa Bay's win Monday against the Flyers. It also was the 200th of his NHL career. … Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel has points in four straight games, totaling four goals and seven points in that span.

Injury report: Lecavalier is out with a lower-body injury, and forward Benoit Pouliot is out with an upper-body injury. … Outside of bumps and bruises, the Maple Leafs are a healthy team.

Am not a PS specialist. Did it as no-one claimed the GDT. Tomorrow's GDT available as well.

I'm with you there. That is the only thing to focus on right now. Just freaking win!

Lebanese Leaf 03-20-2013 12:36 PM

Hedman is in.

Lindback is out, Garon in.

Leaf Rocket 03-20-2013 12:37 PM

Let's give em hell.

rojac 03-20-2013 12:38 PM

Shouldn't that be Gardiner Expressway Special in the title? Unless Gardiner Freeway Special is a reference to something I don't know.

I know it is Gardiner Expressway. Just used Gardiner Freeway in reference to 'Free Gardiner' trend.

Pierre Gotye 03-20-2013 12:40 PM

No Hedman either.

If the Leafs don't win, they didn't show up to play.

Didact 03-20-2013 12:48 PM

you know what, I hardly recognize the forward lines for the Tampa Bay lightning (lines 2-4).

Auzzie19 03-20-2013 12:48 PM

IMO, line matchups should be:

Stamkos line - Kadri line
Pyatt line - Bozak line
Johnson line - Grabo line
4th - 4th

reasoning for Kadri matchup is because of the wingers who are considered defensivly responsible, or could go with grabo line. Kessel line would get eaten alive.

bobbyflex 03-20-2013 12:49 PM

shut down the Stamkos line and should be an easy win

Garon starts for TB tonight; Boucher says Hedman is good to go

stakesishigh 03-20-2013 12:54 PM

Pumped for this game.

I feel like it's been forever since the last hockey game.

ACC1224 03-20-2013 12:58 PM

It's the Gardiner Expressway.

Hero 03-20-2013 12:59 PM

:( I thought my use of the meme was hilarious, and no love :'(

SprDaVE 03-20-2013 01:00 PM

Gardiner Unchained.

(someone photoshop Gardiner's face on top of Django's face. Now.)

bradbirtch 03-20-2013 01:08 PM

woo go leafs go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! woo glg

81snipe 03-20-2013 01:09 PM

Lupul back with a good game under his belt and now Gards called up, hope we can pull this one out and continue to do so tomorrow and after that! Go Leafs Go!

Liferleafer 03-20-2013 01:09 PM

Please...for the love of God....just win!!!

gabeliscious 03-20-2013 01:17 PM

van Riemsdyk - Bozak - Kessel
MacArthur - Grabovski - Frattin
Lupul - Kadri - Kulemin
Komarov - McClement - Orr

Gunnarsson - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Liles
Fraser - Franson

Reimer
Scrivens

are these lines accurate?^^^^^

i hope it is. i think grabs defensive roll is done and passed over to mclemment-komorov-orr. other 3 lines look balanced offensively.

hopefully kadri-lupul can kickstart kulemin and hopefully grabovski having mac and frattin will give him more confidence.

only thing i dont like is gardiner-liles pairing. very fast but super soft and not much sandpaper

mrburke 03-20-2013 01:19 PM

First game ill be seeing live this year and the fact that Gardiner is back makes even more excited! get to see a full strength leafs roster

ForzaZuffa 03-20-2013 01:29 PM

Just curious what's the reasoning for putting two OFD together instead of one with Phanuef since Gunnar is clearly not himself and Liles has said he doesn't mind playing his offside? Seems like a baffling choice by Carlyle
