Gameday With Dan - Tampa Bay Lightning

Where: Consol Energy Center
When: 7:00

Player to watch - Pittsburgh Penguins
Keep an eye on Jordan Staal, in his first game back against the Capitals in the Winter Classic he looked like the Staal of old. Look for him to keep that up today on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Tyler Kennedy. I look for him to get some time on the penalty kill tonight with roughly 24:00 minutes of ice time. Skating with Geno and TK will get him comfortable with Dan Bylsma's system again. Let's Go Gronk.

Player to watch - Tampa Bay Lightning
For the bolts, make sure to have a watchful eye on Steven Stamkos. He hasn't gotten on the scoresheet much in the past couple of games, but he is still one of the best players in the league. He is second in the league in goals (31) and points (56). He gets most of his points on the Tampa power play with 13 of his 31 goals coming on the mad advantage. He is also a plus 12 on the season.
