Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Martin St. Louis (26) on the ice against the Toronto Maple Leafs during third period action at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa Thursday evening (02/06/14). St. Louis was named to replace injured teammate Steven Stamkos to play for Team Canada in the Olympics.

Former captain Marty St. Louis will make his return to Tampa on Nov. 26, a highlight of the Lightning schedule released Sunday by the league (see full schedule below).

St. Louis, who orchestrated his 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 against the Panthers, who are led by new coach and former Lightning forward Gerard Gallant. Tampa Bay's first trip will be one of four five-game stints. It starts in Vancouver on Oct. 18 and includes stops in Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and Minnesota.

The Lightning will have a light stretch with just four games in 16 days from Jan. 18 to Feb. 2. The West Coast trip will be Feb. 15-22, a five-game stint with three days off afterward. The longest homestand will be six games stretching over 13 days March 14-26. There are 12 sets of back-to-back games.

Among other key dates, the Lightning will play the Stanley Cup champion Kings on Feb. 7 (at home) and Feb. 16 (at Los Angeles).

The regular season will conclude with a three-game homestand capped April 11 against division rival Bruins, which won the President's Trophy.

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings, allowing 15 hits and 11 runs while lasting just seven innings total.

    TAMPA — When Hall of Famer Phil Esposito first saw Lightning prospect Oleg Sosunov, he joked that the 6-foot-8 defenseman could reach the Amalie Arena ceiling.

    ST. PETERSBURG — On this particular night, he's the other guy. He's like a talk-show guest scooted to the end of the couch. He is Kevin Cash. And the Rays manager is standing in the home dugout at Tropicana Field.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Joe Maddon returned to Tropicana Field on Tuesday, and so did a legion of Cubs fans who waited nearly an entire season for the World Series champions to make their first trip in nine years to the bay area.

    Rays starter Chris Archer awaits a new ball after Kyle Schwarber homers in the second, putting the Cubs up 1-0.
