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.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
