Lightning schedule released ; St. Louis back in Tampa Nov. 26



Former captain Marty St. Louis will make his much-anticipated return to the Tampa Bay Times Forum Nov. 26, a highlight of the Lightning schedule released Sunday by the league.

St. Louis, who orchestrated his blockbuster trade to the Rangers in March, is slated to face Tampa Bay first on Nov. 17 in New York. The teams will also meet Dec. 1 at Madison Square Garden.

The Lightning will open and finish the season with three home games. The opener will be Oct. 9 vs. the Panthers, led by new coach and former Lightning forward Gerard Gallant. Tampa Bay's first trip will be a season-high matching five-game swing through Canada, starting in Vancouver Oct. 18 with stops in Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and Minnesota.

The Lightning will have a light stretch with just four games in 16 days from Jan. 18-Feb.2. The west coast trip will be Feb. 15-22, a five-game stint with three days off afterwards. The longest homestand will be six games, stretching over 13 days Mar 14-26.

Among other key dates, the Lightning will play the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings on Feb. 7 (at home) and Feb. 16 (in Los Angeles). Tampa Bay will also face the Blackhawks and Penguins twice. The regular season will conclude with a three-game homestand, including a finale April 11 against division rival Bruins, which won the President's Trophy.
