Preview: Flyers at Lightning

After Philadelphia attempts to snap an eight-game losing streak at Tampa Bay, it visits Florida, hosts Detroit, goes to Chicago, hosts Pittsburgh and visits the New York Islanders in succession. ?This is what players play for, to be in a meaningful position,? Flyers goaltender Steve Mason told reporters. ?There are only a few weeks left in the regular season, and we?ve put ourselves in a position to kind of control our own fate, and that?s a fun spot to be in, for sure.? The Lightning have dropped two straight (0-1-1) after winning nine in a row and are comfortably in a playoff spot for now. Tampa Bay could also get top-four defensemen Braydon Coburn (lower body) and Anton Stralman (illness) back in the lineup. <BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7:30 p.m. ET, CSN Philadelphia, FSN Sun (Tampa Bay)
