Preview: Lightning at Hurricanes

?It?s pretty special,? Stamkos told reporters after becoming the third Lightning player to reach the milestone, joining Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis. ?It means you?ve been around for a while, and I?ve been fortunate to play with a lot of good players.? Tampa Bay sits in third place in the Atlantic Division after scoring nine times the last two games while Carolina is two points out of a playoff spot after going 4-1-2 over its last seven contests. Jordan Staal remained hot, scoring for the third straight game in the Hurricanes? 5-2 victory over San Jose on Friday, and Jeff Skinner added two goals. ?Every day you come to the rink, it?s two big points on the line,? Skinner told reporters. ?I think we?ve been able to battle pretty hard to get back in this situation and put ourselves in a spot where we?re in the hunt.?<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7 p.m. ET, Sun Sports (Tampa Bay), FSN Carolinas
