Matt Martin (upper body) and Jordan Eberle (maintenance day) were absent from Wednesday's practice at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, as the team arrived a day early for their game Thursday vs the Lightning. 

Eberle is expected to return for Thursday's contest, but Martin, who has missed two straight games, did not make the trip and is still considered day-to-day. 

Tom Kuhnhackl skated in Eberle's place alongside Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier during the opening line rushes on Wednesday, while Ross Johnston continued to skate in Martin's place on the fourth line.
