Game 5 lines from the morning skate

The Tampa Bay Lightning morning skate revealed what will likely be the Game 5 lines this evening:

The skate was optional, so Ryan Callahan sat it out (begin injury speculation for the Bolts winger with a $6 million dollar ticket and 0 goals in 11 games) and Jonathan Drouin took his place.

Still, it appears as if Jon Cooper will go back to the lineup he'd been using previously, the one that includes Jonathan Drouin in the press box and Brenden Morrow back with Vlad Namestnikov and J.T. Brown on the 4th line. It's tough to see the kid get scratched again after another minus night that wasn't really his fault, but it's understandable why Cooper would go back to the lineup that won games and Morrow's minutes are so few he's unlikely to have much of an impact on the outcome of the game anyways.
