Preview: Sharks at Lightning

San Jose is 3-1-1 in its last five contests overall after a 4-1 home victory over Arizona on Saturday, and veteran Joe Thornton has played a big role in the team?s revival with points in 15 of his last 16 games. The Lightning were rolling along with 11 wins in 13 contests before dropping three of their last four, and it could have been an 0-4-0 stretch if not for a late power-play goal Friday against Nashville. Tampa Bay outshot St. Louis 38-21 in a 2-1 loss on Sunday and has allowed 14 goals during the four-game span. ?We?ve just got to regroup here,? Lightning coach Jon Cooper told reporters. ?Everybody around us is winning.?<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7:30 p.m. ET, CSN California (San Jose), Sun Sports (Tampa Bay)
