The Lightning have recalled Dana Tyrell from the American Hockey League's Norfolk Admirals.
The first month of the 2011-12 seeason has been a game of musical chairs for Lightning forwards. The music seems to finally have stopped.
It's always up for debate when someone tries to compile the best of anything. And The Hockey News all-time Tampa Bay Lightning team is no exception.
Brett Connolly is to stay with the Tampa Bay Lightning this season,. So, who is the odd-man-out when defenseman Mattias Ohlund returns to the lineup?
With their offensive reputation, you'd think the Lightning's offensive leaders in Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos, would be more effective in the shootout.
Though Mattias Ohlund's extended departure from the Lightning lineup hurts, it's not like the Lightning are absent the personnel to make up for the loss.
If the league is taking a hard-line stance against hits-to-the-head, then there should be no excuse making for Ryan Malone's hit on Chris Campoli last night in Quebec City.
