The Gazette’s Pat Hickey has provided the following update on tonight’s game in Tampa Bay.
Defencman Ryan O’Byrne will play against the Lightning, but his cellmate, Tom Kostopoulos, won’t.
Other scratches include Steve Bégin and Roman Hamrlik. Hamrlik practised this morning, but still isn’t 100 per cent recovered from the flu. That means Patrice Brisebois will play.
Cristobal Huet will start in goal.
