Lightning goaltender Dwayne Roloson is getting a game off after suffering 4-2 and 7-1 losses in his last two outings.He will get a game off -- and maybe more -- as coach Guy Boucher allows him to regroup after a rough week.“Right now he's got a lot of games in a row, and he's going to get a break,” coach Boucher told the St. Petersburg Times. “He's had a breather and practices before where he's had success, and all of a sudden he clears his mind and he's back on track. This is a great opportunity for him to master his game.” Back-up Mathieu Garon will start Tampa Bay's next game. If he plays well, he could stay in the nets for a while.Roloson is 1-3-0 with a 4.64 goals-against average and a .851 save percentage in his last four games. His season GAA soared to 3.46 and his save percentage sank to .887.Rollie the Goalie’s struggle has triggered speculation that Tampa Bay is shopping for goaltender help, but right now the trade market is pretty quiet. Even though the Lightning has lost four of five games, general manager Steve Yzerman doesn’t sound ready to pull the trigger on a deal.“I never believe you do something just to do something,” Yzerman told the Tampa Tribune. “You just try to make the team better, whether that's through recalling somebody or a trade. I'm not going to react. You just have to assess your team.“We've been inconsistent. We've had some very good games and done a lot of good things, but as a team we have to improve our team defense. And that's not a critique of our defense, it's just as a team collectively we have to be better. We have higher expectations and some of our players are not playing at the level they were at last year. We are not as deep as we were last year, and we are hoping that within, our players will elevate their play.”
