Default Lightning at Canadiens, 7pm, FSN Florida

Let's see if the Bolts can go 2-0 to close the regular season, due entirely to my creating the GDTs of course.

Tampa Bay Lightning
46-30-5, 2nd in Atlantic Division

Montreal Canadiens
37-38-6, 6th in Atlantic Division

Tonight 7:00 PM on FSFL*, TVA, RSN
from the Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec

* note this game is not on SunSports as usual.

The Lightning get another crack at goalie Mike Condon, who won two games at Amelie Arena in Tampa, most recently a disheartening 3-0 shutout.

But there could be good news for Lightning fans as No. 1 dman Victor Hedman could return.

I kind of hope Hedman doesn't play. Literally nothing to play for now. Vasi should start too. Rest up Bishop.

Still I don't want to get swept by these losers.

Agree on hedman but I'm torn on goalie. I want to rest bishop, but then he's off for almost a week, and when does rest turn to rust? I think coaches could justify either way. I think I would lean towards vasi, but can't argue if they do go bishop.

They showed a graphic last game where Bishop does dramatically better with 3+ days of rest, so he doesn't seem the type to rust.

Erlendsson just tweeted that Vasilevskiy appears to be starting tonight.

No Kucherov on the ice.

Both he and Hedman confirmed out tonight. Cooper not worried about either of them just playing it safe.

Joe Smith ‏@TBTimes_JSmith 5m5 minutes ago

#tblightning Cooper said Kucherov, Hedman, Callahan are out tonight. Vasilevskiy in net, Marchessault back in lineup.

Hedman said he feels better, but they made a decision to hold him out and make sure he's 100-percent for Wednesday's Game 1 #tblightning

Work has been nuts so I'm not keeping up with things too well - am I wrong in thinking tonight's game means absolutely zero to us? This new(ish) playoff format still confounds me.

The only meaning the game has is we might be able to secure 4th in the conference if the Rangers lose in regulation. Would only help in a potential ECF matchup though.
