Lightning star right wing Marty St. Louis practiced with the team Tuesday for the first time since sustaining facial fractures when hit by a puck during a Dec. 8 morning skate. St. Louis, who has missed five games, skated with a full cage mask. Coach Guy Boucher reiterated that he does not expect St. Louis back before Christmas. The team has a two-game road trip tonight at San Jose and Friday at Colorado. "I feel encouraged," St. Louis said.
