Each level of giving includes a postgame meeting with St. Louis and, for the purchaser, tickets to tonight's season finale with the Panthers. The top level also includes a signed St. Louis jersey.

For more information, call Alison Goodman at (813) 301-6683.

Prospect fined: Lightning prospect Cedric Paquette, a forward for Blainville-Boisbriand of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, was fined $1,000 by the league for "inappropriate behavior" for his role Thursday in starting a bench-clearing brawl with Baie-Comeau, the Canadian Press reported.

Paquette, taken 101st overall at last year's draft, taunted Baie-Comeau players after Blainville-Boisbriand's 4-3 victory in Game 4 of the teams' best-of-seven league semifinal series that was tied 2-2 heading into Friday night's Game 5.

In addition to Paquette's punishment, 12 players were suspended, both coaches were banned for two games and each team fined $5,000.
