Projected lineups for Sabres, Lightning

TAMPA -- When the Tampa Bay Lightning host the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday at Tampa Bay Times Forum, the scene behind both benches will be a lot different than the one at the beginning of the season.

Leading the Sabres will be interim coach Ron Rolston, having taken over the position Feb. 20 from longtime coach Lindy Ruff.

The Lightning will be led by assistant coach Daniel Lacroix and player development coach Steve Thomas, who will lead the team until new coach Jon Copper takes over Wednesday.

Here are what the lineups will likely be for both teams:

Sami Salo - Victor Hedman

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
