Final Game of Road Trip Tonight in Montreal
 

The Lightning wrap up this six-day road trip in Montreal tonight and I'm sure everyone is looking forward to being back in their own beds.  First things first though, as the team battles for important points on the road.

Antero Niittymaki gets the start in goal again tonight.  It will mark his third consecutive start.  Victor Hedman, while feeling better, will sit out tonight as a precaution.  Kurtis Foster will take his place on the roster. Rick Tocchet said Foster needs to be more aggressive and better at 5-on-5 play.  Adding him, and his booming shot, should help the power play though.

The team is scheduled to have an afternoon practice tomorrow after getting in to Tampa late tonight.
