Bolts TV Reporter Michelle Gingras provides six storylines for tonight\'s Lightning vs. Canucks matchup.

Tonight the Tampa Bay Lightning look to go 3-3 this homestand as they face the Vancouver Canucks for the second and final time this season. Last time these two teams met, Tampa Bay defeated Vancouver 4-2. Puck drops at the Tampa Bay Times Forum at 7:30 pm and you can follow all of the action on Sun Sports.

  1. The Lightning enter tonight's game having picked up points in four straight games (2-0-2).

  3. Valtteri Filppula enters tonight's game sitting just one point shy of 300 in his career. He's posted five assists in his past two games.
  4. Ondrej Palat enters tonight's game on a four-game point streak (three goals, four assists).
  5. Defenseman Mike Kostka has scored two goals and one assist over his past two games.
