This is the End: Lightning at Thrashers Season Finale Thread

The End
It hurts so much to set you free
But you're played such lousy hockey
The End
Of grimaces and ties
The End
Of nights you made us cry
This is the end

(A horrid parody of the last lines of The Endd by The Doors)

For those viewing at home, the Lightning will be on WTOG 44 tonight instead of on their standard cable broadcast at SunSports...  Mac McKenna is set to be starting in net (it's his birthday)...  Everything else is up in the air at this point.  Lightning Insider reports that Lukas Krajicek has contracted a stomach bug and may be out...  Matt Lashoff and Josef Melichar may be back...  It's all pending right now...

With that in mind, I am putting up the highly guesswork projected lineup for tonight.  I've heard nothing to confirm anything I'm listing -- so don't bet on it being the final lineup:
