Second-place clubs clash as Lightning host Flyers

After a Tuesday night performance in Toronto that Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper called "embarrassing," the Lightning are looking forward to sunnier times back home on Florida's west coast.

The Lightning (43-21-6, 92 points) will host the Philadelphia Flyers (41-21-7, 89 points) on Thursday night in the third and final meeting between the two second-place teams in the Atlantic and Metropolitan Divisions, respectively.

Tampa Bay sits comfortably in second in the Atlantic -- trailing first-place Boston by eight points and leading third-place Toronto by 11 entering Wednesday -- and are likely locked into the position they will hold when the Eastern Conference playoffs open next month.
