TAMPA - Sunny Tampa is the sight of Saturday's match-up between the Carolina Hurricanes and Tampa Bay Lightning.

James Reimer, who has won two consecutive starts, gets the nod in net on the second half of this back-to-back set. In seven road appearances this season, Reimer has posted a 4-2-0 record, a 2.44 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage and one shutout.

Elsewhere, head coach Rod Brind'Amour said he might make some lineup tweaks. Defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk was the lone healthy extra last night.

"We had a couple guys get nicked up, so I'm not sure," Brind'Amour said. "A little bit of game-time decisions going on."
