Link Dump: Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens Preview

WHERE:  Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec
MEDIA: Sun Sports (Cable), 620 WDAE (radio)

With thanks a technical difficulty, we’re skipping our usual write-up preview of tonight’s game and instead investing in sending out references to both Lightning and non-Lightning stories on the web today.  We should be back to the other format for the Bolts next game.

  • The Habs will be wearing another throwback jesey tonight.. And there’s a history behind the sweater. [Habs Eyes on The Prize]
  • Vinny vs. Stamkos… Yeah, yeah, it’s all over the place. Yet there’s a compelling argument it’s unfounded [Hockey or Die]
  • And more on the Lecavalier / Team Canada / Stamkos debate [The Hockey Writers]
  • First it’s Vinny’s extended drought, then it’s Tanguay’s… Now it’s Martin St. Louis and he’s none too happy about it [Lightning Strikes]
  • We’ll add this tidbit from the above linked article:

    Center Vinny Lecavalier was hit during dinner Friday night with a rogue case of laryngitis that makes him sound as if he is again going through puberty.

    It’s always interesting when Vincenzo visits Monteál

  • Victor Hedman is indeed out tonight, while Kurtis Foster is in [Lightning Strikes]
  • The bi-seasonal return to Quebec brings three Bolts back “home” [CBC Sports]
  • Former Bolt Roman Hamrlik is getting plenty of ice time on the Habs blue line this season. [Faceoff.com]
  • Another former Bolt, Jay Leach, s looked at by the Habs as someone to help bolster their ailing defensive corps. [TSN.ca]
  • Raw Charge’s own Cassie McClellan will be participating on Jabberhockey’s radio show (presented by On Goal Analysis) on Sunday at 5:30 PM. [Blog Talk Radio]
