The Tampa Bay Lightning's bid for a third consecutive win will be televised across the United States and Canada on Monday night.
The Lightning (11-9-2), who just completed a home-and-home series sweep of the Florida Panthers over the weekend, will travel to Minnesota to face the Wild at the Xcel Energy Center. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on VERSUS in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.
Minnesota (13-7-3) will be playing its second home game in as many nights after suffering a 5-2 loss to the Calgary Flames on Sunday. Mike Yeo's club will be looking to avoid a three-game losing streak as it also dropped a 5-2 decision to Edmonton on Friday. Monday's showdown against the Lightning marks the conclusion of a six-game homestand for the Wild.
Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
