Tampa Bay Lightning lineup remains the same versus Hurricanes; Keith Aulie out, Mathieu Garon in

The Tampa Bay Lightning roster will remain the same from Thursday's game against the Bruins, with defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron inserted into the lineup and Keith Aulie sitting, according to Joe Smith (sitting in for Damian Cristodero on the @LightningTimes Twitter account) from the Tampa Bay Times.

Aulie has missed two of the past three Lightning games due to illness. According to Smith in a subsequent message, Aulie will likely find his way back into the lineup against the Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

Meanwhile, the starter for the Lightning in goal has now been named: it'll be a battle of the backups in Raleigh as Mathieu Garon will make his second start of the season against Carolina. It was already announced Dan Ellis would start for the Canes. Garon started on January 22nd (the Lightning's third game of the season) and stopped 35 of 36 shots on his way to a 4-1 Lightning victory.
