More Tampa Bay Pre-Game Notes

More injuries for the Tampa game. Mark Hartigan has been called from from Grand Rapids to cover for Kirk Maltby, who’s out with a shoulder injury.

MacLeod has the lines from the morning skate. Hartigan was centering Kopecky (previously mentioned as returning to the lineup and Downey.

This is Maltby’s first missed game since before the lockout.

No word on who was placed on the IR to make room for Hartigan’s call-up. My guess would be Draper since his injury timeline is more defined than those of Maltby or Ellis.
