SAINTS COME MARCHING IN
Break up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are on a two-game winning streak. Just don’t bank on Tampa Bay and Jameis Winston making it three, however, as the NFC South-leading New Orleans Saints team (10-2) comes to town looking to avenge a Week 1 loss. (Remember FitzMagic?)

LIGHTNING: IT’S A PREHOLIDAY HOMESTAND
Let’s hope that goaltender Louis Domingue gets some rest before the Tampa Bay Lightning begin a homestand with games this week. Domingue has been looking kind of tired in recent games as he adjusts to being the starter in place of the injured Andrei Vasilevskiy. The games are against the Boston Bruins (7:30 p.m. Thursday), the Colorado Avalanche (7 p.m. Saturday) and the New York Rangers (7:30 p.m. Monday). Ticket prices vary by game. Amalie Arena, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. (813) 301-6600. TV: Fox Sun; radio: 970-AM.
