Tampa Bay Lightning at Buffalo Sabres game thread

The flip-side of back-to-back contests, the Lightning square off against the Buffalo Sabres in this late-afternoon/early evening affair. Does Tampa Bay have enough left in the tank after going to overtime yesterday to make a showing against the Sares?

A few quick notes before the game today: Mathieu Garon is slated to start in net for the Lightning. He played in relief last night and was the goalie of record when the Bolts lost in overtime to the Capitals.

Defenseman Mark Barberio is being returned to the Syracuse Crunch. Tampa Bay has recalled forward J.T. Wyman from the Crunch; Wyman will likely play in place of Nate Thompson tonight who has been confirmed to be out for the game. That stems from yesterday's incident in Washington.
