Storylines: Krug, signed to an entry-level contract, is participating in his first NHL morning skate. Krug will remain with the team for the rest of the season, a perk which was part of his deal. Krug is a left-shot defenseman with an offensive bent to his game. Krug is wearing No. 47, last worn by Steven Kampfer… Tampa Bay has the third-worst penalty kill in the league… Brian Rolston has a six-game scoring streak. Rolston has a 3-8—11 line during the stretch… The Lightning are coming off a 5-3 road win over Philadelphia on Monday… The Bruins are shaving their heads on Wednesday for charity… Justin St. Pierre and Kelly Sutherland will be the referees. Tim Nowak and Scott Driscoll will be the linesmen.
