Lightning aim to build on offensive effort when they host 'Canes

TAMPA, Fla. -- After finding their offensive game, the Tampa Bay Lightning want to make sure their defensive game is on point when they host the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.

After scoring twice in the opening two games of the season, Tampa Bay erupted for eight goals against Columbus the last time out, getting points from 13 different players and goals from seven different scorers. Tampa Bay scored half those goals with the man advantage after going 0-for-8 to start the season.

It was the type of result the Lightning needed after fielding days' worth of questions about a slow start and lack of production.
