After falling to the Blues last week, the Lightning go for revenge when they host St. Louis on Wednesday night. 

Tampa Bay got out to an early lead last Tuesday in St. Louis on a first period goal from Anthony Cirelli. However, three Blues goals over the final 23 minutes sent the Bolts to a 3-1 defeat.
