The Lightning did not have a morning skate Sunday, but they are expected to stick with the same lineup that produced a 5-2 victory at the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday -- with the exception of Lindback being back in goal.
With Malkin out, Neal moves onto Crosby's wing. Sutter is promoted to the second line, and Dustin Jeffrey slots into a third-line center role. Jeffrey was a healthy scratch for much of the season but had a goal Friday.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
