Meanwhile, Tampa has won two straight, with backup goaltender Mathieu Garon getting the 21-save shutout in the last game. Coach Guy Boucher said he'll stick with Garon until struggling starter Dwayne Roloson rights himself.
The potential line combos for this game, as they were used mostly in the previous game:
Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
