WHEN/WHERE: 5 p.m.; St. Pete Times Forum, Tampa.TV/RADIO: Sun Sports; 970-AM (620-AM will join in progress after Bucs broadcast).SEASON SERIES: Lightning leads 1-0.WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Lightning is coming off its worst loss of the season - 8-2 to the Devils on Friday - that snapped a four-game win streak. John Grahame, 7-1-1 with a 1.88 goals-against average against the Pens, is the guess to start in goal. Pittsburgh rookie star Sidney Crosby might not be able to play because of a bruised left foot. After going winless in its first nine games (0-4-5), the Penguins are 7-6-1. But they are coming off a 6-3 loss to a Panthers team that had lost 12 in a row. Look for Jocelyn Thibault to start in goal for Pittsburgh. In his career, he is 12-2-2 with a 2.18 goals-against average against the Lightning.- TOM JONES, Times staff writer
