Hey guys, I have some good and some bad news.

The bad news is: Malone and Hedman definitely won't play tonight and Boucher is most likely going to cut the ice time of Stamkos, St. Louis, probably Lecavalier, etc.

The good news: Smith will be in net tonight. He's been terrific since he was called up again after Ellis was traded to Anaheim. He shutout a desperate Blackhawks team last Sunday and won against the very Hurricanes exactly two weeks ago (.943 SV%, 33/35 SV/SA) plus it's his contract year and while his future might not be with the Lightning after this season he has to prove that he's still NHL goaltending material.
