Patrice Brisebois, who's celebrating his 38th birthday today, will have the night off. Steve Begin will also be in the press box alongside Brisebois.

Here's tonight's starting lineup.

Pacioretty – Plekanec – Kovalev
Kostitsyn (A) – Lang – Kostitsyn (S)
Higgins – Koivu – D’Agostini
Latendresse – Lapierre – Kostopoulos

It's the second time in less then a month that the Habs are in Tampa. The last time the teams met on December 30, Maxime Lapierre scored in the shootout to give the Canadiens the 2-1 win.
