The Tampa Bay Lightning will look for their third straight win when they play their cross-state rival, the Florida Panthers, on Monday.
They'll have to do it without defenseman Eric Brewer, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Brewer has seven assists and a plus-3 rating while averaging 16:59 of ice time per game.
In his absence Lightning coach Jon Cooper changed two of his defense pairings during the team's morning skate, pairing Sami Salo with Mark Barberio and Victor Hedman with Andrej Sustr. The only pairing to remain the same was Matthew Carle with Radko Gudas.
Ben Bishop was the first goalie off the ice following the Lightning’s morning skate, which likely means he’ll be the starter in goal Monday.
In the Panthers net will be Scott Clemmensen, according to the Miami Herald. Clemmensen, Jacob Markstrom and Tim Thomas all were on the ice during the morning skate, with Thomas and Clemmensen taking the bulk of the work. However, Thomas remains on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.
Here is how the lineups for both teams likely will look Monday:
Ondrej Palat - Tyler Johnson - Martin St. Louis
Alex Killorn - Valtteri Filppula - Teddy Purcell
J.T. Brown - Nate Thompson - Nikita Kucherov
