Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune has released  the roster for the Tampa Bay Lightning's only pre-season home game Friday night against the Atlanta Thrashers. 2009 1st round draft picks Victor Hedman  and Carter Ashton  highlight six prospects that will get important starts in a star-filled lineup in front of an expectant home crowd. After playing 27+ minutes against Dallas Wednesday night, Hedman will get a chance to showcase why he was the #2 overall pick this summer. Ashton will line up on right wing alongside franchise center Vincent Lecavalier  and Alex Tanguay  on what presumes to be Tampa's top line. A heady start for the young power forward whom most believe is headed back Lethbridge for one more year of juniors. Forwards Paul Szczechura , Richard Panik  and Blair Jones  get their second consecutive starts after playing Wednesday against the Stars. Jones tallied the go-ahead goal in the third period before the Bolts succumbed to a shootout loss. Prospect goaltender phenom Dustin Tokarski  will relieve Mike Smith  for the third period and demonstrate to the home crowd as to why he won the 2008 Memorial Cup.
The expected forward lines for Friday's game are:
Alex Tanguay - Vincent Lecavalier - Carter Ashton
Ryan Malone  - Steven Stamkos  - Martin St. Louis 
Stephane Veilleux  - Paul Szczechura - Richard Panik
Zenon Konopka  - Ryan Craig  - Blair Jones
Joining Hedman on the blueline for a second straight game are David Hale , Kurtis Foster , and Mike Lundin . Mattias Ohlund  will be making his Lightning debut and Lukas Krajicek  rounds out the Bolt defensive corps. Joining Tokarski in net is Lightning #1 goalie Mike Smith in his first game action since a concussion prematurely ended his 2008-09 season.
