Karlsson stepping in



It didn't take long for Tortorella to give Andreas Karlsson some more opportunities.

Karlsson had a great first shift, and is on a line with Jason Ward and Brad Richards.

Ward, who is playing a career high in minutes, has been partnered with Richards for a while, but it's a compliment to Karlsson...

Karlsson and Ward teamed up for one of the Lightning's several early scoring chances. Ward started it with a strong forecheck, then came back to send a shot at the net - which Brodeur stopped - but it went right to Karlsson - who missed wide.

Expect Ward and Karlsson to play a ton tonight - especially with Feds out...
