Tampa Bay Lightning Game Day Lineup

Tonight, Steven Stamkos and our Tampa Bay Lightning storm into Bridgestone Arena to go head to head with captain Shea Weber and the Nashville Predators for the second time this preseason.

As you know, when the Predators came calling at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the Lightning and their Thunder made short work of the Predators, defeating them 5-1.

Will Lightning strike twice, and send the Preds back to the locker room with another ‘L’?

We’ll all just have to listen and find out.

According to the Tampa Bay Lightning’s official website, here is your starting lineup for tonight.

Forwards Defensemen Goaltenders
J.T. Brown Mark Barberio Anders Lindback
Brett Connolly Eric Brewer Ben Bishop
B.J. Crombeen J.P. Cote
Jonathan Drouin Dmitry Korobov
Valtteri Filppula Victor Hedman
Nikita Kucherov Sami Salo
Pierre-Cedric Labrie Andrej Sustr
Teddy Purcell
Tom Pyatt
Steven Stamkos
Nate Thompson
Dana Tyrell

While both Anders Lindback and Ben Bishop are in the lineup tonight, Lindback will be the goalie getting the start. This will be the first game he has played in the Bridgestone Arena since being traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

With the exception of Martin St. Louis and Ryan Malone, who are not in tonight’s lineup, there are a number of line combinations that could indeed come into play that I have been waiting anxiously to see. It will be interesting to see which center they pair up with Jonathan Drouin tonight.

Do you think our Bolts have what it takes to put another ‘W’ on the board tonight? Who do you think will be the standout of tonight’s matchup? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think!
