. Both were recalled by the Lightning after Darryl Sydor and Rob DiMaio both left the game against the Flyers today after Sydor took a puck to the mouth and DiMaio's took a high stick. Both Jaspers and O'Brien have been playing well of late to earn the callup. Jaspers scored 2 goals in Springfield's come from behind triumph over Portland Friday night and had 5 goals and 9 points in his last 9 games. O'Brien has been solid defensively of late and has 8 assists in his last 10 games. He leads all Falcons defensemen with 18 points in 45 games.
