Lightning's Brewer scratched with lower-body injury

COLUMBUS -- Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Eric Brewer is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets and is listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Brewer, who did participate in the team's morning skate, leads all Tampa Bay defensemen with a plus-5 rating. He had played in all 26 games and had five assists.

Brewer missed an opportunity to face the team he has scored the most points against in his 15-year career. He has 17 points, including five goals, against the Blue Jackets.

Keith Aulie replaced Brewer in the lineup.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
