A lockout shortened season will be a true test for the Bolts. Listed below is the 2013 roster, offseason moves, players to keep an eye on, and how they may finish this season. Roster Forwards #     Name 89   Cory Conacher 19   B.J. Crombeen 18   Adam Hall 76   Pierre-Cedric Labrie 4     Vincent Lecavalier 12   Ryan Malone 67   Benoit Pouliot 16   Teddy Purcell 11   Tom Pyatt 26   Martin St Louis 91   Steven Stamkos 44   Nate Thompson 42   Dana Tyrell Defensemen #    Name 3    Keith Aulie 47  Marc-Andre Bergeron 2    Eric Brewer 25  Matthew Carle 77  Victor Hedman 15  Brian Lee 29  Brendan Mikkelson 5    Mattias Ohlund “A” 6    Sami Salo 55  Matt Taormina Goalies #    Name 32  Mathieu Garon 39  Anders Lindback Acquisitions: G Anders Lindback, LW Benoit Pouliot, D Matt Carle, D Sami Salo,  RW B,J. Crombeen Losses: RW Ryan Shannon, G Dwayne Roloson, D Brett Clark Players to watch: Steven Stamkos – With 60 goals last season, how many can “Stammer” score in 48 games? Look for Stamkos to continue to carry the Bolts this season. Anders Lindback – General manager Steve Yzerman got the goalie he was after last offseason in Lindback. The Lightning scored the ninth highest goals in the league (232) but gave up the most with 278. Can Lindback be the starting goaltender Tampa Bay has looked for? Season Outlook The Lightning missed out on the playoffs last season due to winning just three of their final eight games last year. A lockout shortened season can prove to be beneficial for Tampa Bay. If they can get off to a quick start, they have a good chance of playing in the postseason. The post Tampa Bay Lightning 2013 season preview appeared first on The Bay Cave.
