Tonight's likely line combinations for Senators, Lightning

I had a request from Peter at Silver Seven Sens to let him know the Lightning line combinations. While I'm not absolutely sure things will play out like this, I believe the Bolts lines will open with something along the lines of:

Cory Conacher - Steven Stamkos - Martin St. Louis
Tom Pyatt - Vincent Lecavalier- Teddy Purcell
Ryan Malone - Nate Thompson - Benoit Pouliot
Adam Hall - B.J. Crombeen

The top-3 left wings (Conacher, Malone, Pyatt) will likely shuffle between lines as they have the past few games, so don't write these combos in stone.

Erik Erlendsson reported it'll be a 11-7 lineup split tonight. Defense should look like:

Matt Carle - Eric Brewer
Victor Hedman - Sami Salo
Brian Lee - Keith Aulie
Marc-Andre Bergeron

Anders Lindback starts for the Lightning in goal.

On the flip side, Peter passed on Ottawa's likely starters:

Michalek-Spezza-Silfverberg
Latendresse-Turris-Alfredsson
Greening-Smith-Neil
O'Brien-Regin-Condra

Méthot-Karlsson
Phillips-Gonchar
Wiercioch-Benoît

Like I said in the preview, it will be Ben Bishop between the pipes for the enators.
