Lightning's Anton Stralman: Back in action Thursday

Stralman (upper body) will return to the lineup for Thursday night's game in St. Louis, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Stralman is likely to slot back into his spot in the top defensive pairing after missing the last nine games to injury. Tampa's defense has been slipping lately, as they've allowed at least four goals in each of their last four contests, so they'll be pleased to have the 30-year-old blueliner back in the lineup Thursday.
