Storylines: Both teams have 81 points and identical records… The Lightning have some new faces since their last visit to the Garden: Dwayne Roloson, Eric Brewer, and Marc-Andre Bergeron. They had to shore up their goaltending, which they appear to have done with the former UMass-Lowell netminder… Tampa has allowed 11 shorties and scored only one… Mark Recchi will tie Scott Stevens for sixth place on the all-time games played list tonight (1,635)… Rob Martell and Stephen Walkom will be the referees. Darren Gibbs and Pierre Champoux will be the linesmen.
