Lightning start eight-game road trip against Wild

SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- In football, much is made of a team's record coming out of the bye week. It's less discussed in hockey, and heading into their road game versus the Minnesota Wild on Saturday, the Tampa Bay Lightning would like to forget all about it.

Tampa still holds a solid lead atop the Eastern Conference, but had lopsided losses both before and after their five-day break, leaving the Bolts looking for answers as they head into an eight-game road trip.

"We've lost 9-2 in our last two home games. That's a concern, for a place that's usually a pretty tough place to play for teams. We haven't made it too tough the last two games," said Lightning coach John Cooper after his team dropped a 4-1 game to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday.
