Important game if Tampa wants to pull out a miracle this season. Will be at the game so come on Lightning. Any word on whether Bishop will be starting? Or is it too soon after being acquired to get him in net?

Also wondering with Cooper mentioning he liked to play 7-D, who will be filling that role now that Bergeron has been traded and Lee, Sustr sent down. Guess they go with 6 unless forced to bring someone up if there is an injury?

In giving it some more thought, I'd guess that Bishop starts tomorrow since there are back-to-back games over weekend

Looks like Bishop will start... will be nice to see.

Well we did not aquire him to be a professional door opener so I do hope he is starting tonight. Like it or not it is now in Bishop we trust. I hope he plays superb and makes us all believers because wins are nice.

Pitkänen is out. Hurt himself against the Caps, if I'm not mistaken. Done for the season.

Must win. Or must lose. 1 point is the worst thing.

Must win. Really pissed I can only watch the first period. I have hockey at 9, I almost want to skip it but it might end up not being worth it.

We probably have to finish 10W-3L to have a shot, 11-2 would be better. Give it all you've got guys. Make the playoffs or not, let's see what we have going into next season.

He looked like a man playing in the AHL. Last year he looked like a boy. In the AHL, he often appeared to think the game one step faster than his linemates.

Would love to see Bishop start tonight, but still unconfirmed. I'm excited to see Connolly play again after almost a full year at the AHL level!

The Bishop quote is a reassuring 180 from yesterday. Lol.

And our forwards are ridiculous.

Connolly looked good down the stretch last year too. The fact that Yzerman changed his mind and called him up is a great sign. He's going to make a lot of people eat crow.

Very excited tonight, want to see Bishop. Connolly will probably look much better tonight than last season, just got give him a couple shifts to acclimate himself to NHL speed.

Yep...broken heel, done for the season. Injured on an icing race, it looked bad.

So Lecavalier is back, Bishop in net, and Connolly's season debut - sounds good to me.
