Boston at Tampa Bay: The Game Preview

Sorry this is late going up. John, who usually does the game previews, is feeling under the weather. And I've been at work all day. So, here you go.

The only known change to the lineup is that Riku Helenius has been returned to the Norfolk Admirals. No other lineup changes have been announced. In fact, nothing has really been announced for this game at all today.

Antero Niittymaki and his wife welcomed their second child - a baby girl. Congratulations to the Niittymaki family. He will be back in the lineup tonight, but it is unknown at the time of this posting whether he will be starting or not.
