49 and holding

Well, while 21 defensivemen used is a record, the Tampa Bay Lightning will not be breaking the "number of players used" mark tonight after a pair of call-ups from AHL Norfolk.

Zenon Konopka and Vlad "The Impailer" Mihalik will be in the linup for the game versus the Islanders tonight after Brian Lawton's "ready to go, you're going" mandate claimed another casualty.  Ryan Craig also went down (sus the Konopka call up).

No word yet if the Lightning have reached a record for injuries-sustained-through-overuse.
