Quick pregame notes: Cory Stillman returns to the ice tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Craig Anderson will be in goal for the Cats for the second consecutive night. Anderson is coming off of a great game on Sunday, when he made 44 saves in a win against the Anaheim Ducks. Stillman has been out with a concussion since the November 2nd game in Atlanta. He will be a welcome sight to the 2nd to worst offensive team in the league.
Another welcome sight might be the Lightning, who are the worst. Despite offensive weapons like Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, and first overall draft pick Steven Stamkos, the Bolts have scored just 30 goals this season, and only 2 goals in each of their last 3 games, all losses.
The Panthers are returning from a 5 game road trip, in which they gained only 3 points. Puck drops at 7:30 tonight.
