KEY GAME INFORMATION
TAMPA BAY: LAST SEASON: 54-23-5, 113 points. Won Atlantic Division.
LOST to Washington Capitals in Eastern Conference Finals.
COACH: Jon Cooper (sixth NHL season, 242-143-40, 36-28 playoffs).
ADDED: F Andy Andreoff.
LOST: F Chris Kunitz, G Peter Budaj, D Jake Dotchin.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Nikita Kucherov. Kucherov has taken the mantle from Steven Stamkos to become the Lightning's most dynamic player. He scored a career-high 40 goals in 2016-17 and followed it up with 39 goals and 100 points last season. Kucherov signed an 8-year, $76 million contract extension in July.
OUTLOOK: Even with the surprising announcement of Steve Yzerman stepping down as general manager, it's business as usual for the Lightning. The roster remains largely unchanged from last season and another deep playoff run is expected as long as Kucherov, Stamkos, Brayden Point, Victor Hedman and Andrei Vasilevskiy stay healthy.
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 45-26-11, 101 points. Third in Central Division.
LOST to Winnipeg Jets in Western Conference quarterfinals.
COACH: Bruce Boudreau (third season, 12th NHL season).
ADDED: RW J.T. Brown, C Eric Fehr, C Matt Hendricks, RW Matt Read, D Greg Pateryn, D Matt Bartkowski.
LOST: C Matt Cullen, LW Tyler Ennis, RW Daniel Winnik.
PLAYER TO WATCH: LW Zach Parise. After missing the first 39 games because of a lower back problem that required surgery, Parise's delayed start was predictably slow. He scored 12 goals in his last 18 games of the regular season, though, and scored in each of the first three playoff games until being knocked out of action again by a broken sternum. Parise, who's entering his 14th NHL season at age 34, isn't built to be the team's premier scorer but needs to replicate that productivity down the stretch to help keep the offense balanced.
OUTLOOK: New GM Paul Fenton made only minor moves this summer for fresh faces on the fourth line and more depth on defense, so the Wild will rely on the same core that has been bounced out of the playoffs in the first round three straight times and won only two series over the last six years. Just reaching the postseason again in the rugged Western Conference would be an accomplishment in itself, and Boudreau has as strong of an 82-game track record as any bench boss in the league. Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, who's coming off a serious ankle injury that kept him out of the playoffs, must stay healthy throughout the seventh year of their identical $98 million megadeals. Wings Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter also have to bounce back from down seasons.
PREVIEW
Lightning look to continue hot start vs. Wild

The Tampa Bay Lightning are the last team to hit the road this NHL season.

After five consecutive home games to start the season, Tampa Bay heads to Minnesota on Saturday to face the Wild, who played in Dallas on Friday night.

The Lightning come in to Saturday with a 4-1 record, but have not won in Minnesota since April 2, 2011, with an 0-5-1 record at Xcel Energy Center since that last win.

But after being home for so long, the Lightning are embracing their first chance to get out on the road for what will be a season-long five-game road trip.

"There is something to be said about going on the road," head coach Jon Cooper said. "Not only do you have to win games on the road, but part of it is now less distractions together."

The already deep Lightning lineup was bolstered by the return to action of veteran Ryan Callahan, who underwent off-season shoulder surgery in May and was expected to be out until November. But Callahan returned on Thursday against Detroit and logged just over 11 minutes of ice time.

"Obviously great to be back," Callahan said. "As anticipated, timing is still to come. We tried to make some plays that aren't there. It's always good to be back and get that first one out of the way and calm your nerves down a little bit. No matter when you're coming back for a return, you have a little bit of jitters. It's good to get that one out of the way."

Tampa Bay's depth will be tested against the stingy Wild.

On Friday in a 3-1 victory at Dallas, it was sort of the prototypical Wild game with few goals, some spectacular goaltending and Minnesota getting some offense from the defense. It's goaltending performances like the one the Wild received from Devan Dubnyk on Friday that keep Minnesota in games.

"With this group I know that if we are not clicking a little bit and the other team is making a push, that if I can just hang in there a bit and keep the game close . . .," Dubnyk told NBCSN after the game. "We get a goal and I think they had one shot after that. That's the kind of things that we can do."

The Wild received goals from defensemen Ryan Suter and Matt Dumba in Dallas as Minnesota's defense has accounted for six of the team's 17 goals through seven games.

"It's important," Suter told NBCSN about goals from the defense. "Obviously you try to chip in and help out in any way you can.''

They will need more push from the backend while facing the Lightning in a back-to-back setting if Minnesota wants to extend its winning streak to three games.

"We have to, that's two in a row for us," Dubnyk said. "It's early but these are important games in the year and this is a team we don't see very often, but we know with Tampa it's a huge challenge and there will be no reason not to be up for that one."
