  • In his most recent column, Lightning play-by-play radio announcer Dave Mishkin shared his list of current NHL players he loves to watch. [Tampa Bay Lightning]
  • The Lightning made a video of some of the best highlights from 2014. And to get you into the holiday spirit, Carol of the Bells is playing in the background:

  • The Dallas Stars rallied from a 5-2 deficit on Sunday night to beat the Edmonton Oilers 6-5 in the shootout. Former Bolt goalie Anders Lindback saw NHL action for the first time since November 29 and earned praise from Stars coach Lindy Ruff for his effort. [Dallas Stars]
  • Dallas Eakins, recently fired by the Oilers, may return to the Toronto Maple Leafs organization. [Sportsnet]
  • The mumps continues to wreak havoc on the Pittsburgh Penguins. Former Lightning forward Steve Downie, Brandon Sutter and Thomas Greiss were sent back to Pittsburgh for testing, leaving the Pens shorthanded for last night's game against the Florida Panthers. [Pensburgh]
