Tampa Bay Lighting Form

Tampa Bay have won five of their first seven games in this season’s playoffs.

They took command of the series with Florida in the first round by winning the first two games, 5-4 and 3-1.

A 6-5 overtime defeat at the Panthers prevented a Lightning sweep.

They responded in style though with a 6-2 demolition of Florida to put themselves on the brink of advancing.

The Panthers made them wait with a 4-1 win in Game 5, but Tampa clinched the series with a 4-0 victory in Game 6.

They then gained the upper-hand in this series with a 2-1 victory in Game 1 in Carolina.

David Savard is day-to-day after sustaining an upper body injury at the weekend.

Anders Nilsson (concussion) and Marian Gaborik (bank) both remain sidelined indefinitely.

Carolina Hurricanes Form

Carolina overcame Nashville in a marathon six-game series in the previous round.

The Hurricanes appeared to be cruising as they ran out comfortable winners in the first two games.

They followed up a 5-2 victory with a 3-0 win, but things went south in Nashville.

Carolina dropped a couple of double overtime games by the narrowest of margins – 5-4 and 4-3.

They stopped the rot in Game 5 with a 3-2 victory that required additional time to determine a winner.

The Hurricanes then needed OT again in Game 6, but they finally got the job done, winning 4-3.

That set up this meeting with Tampa Bay, and the find themselves behind early after a 2-1 home defeat in Game 1.

Carolina are in good healthy as they look to bounce back with only Nino Niederreiter (upper body) list on the injury report as day-to-day.
