  • McElhinney made 31 saves Thursday in a 3-1 win over the Hurricanes. The rarely-used backup earned his second win of the season. McElhinney allowed just a single goal in wins against the Hurricanes and Preds, and six last time out against the Panthers. We have confidence in the Bolts and the 37-year-old veteran.

  • McElhinney is slated to start between the pipes in Thursday's home game versus Carolina, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. McElhinney struggled in his last start Feb. 15 versus Florida, surrendering six goals on just 21 shots en route to a 6-4 loss. He'll attempt to bounce back and secure his second win of the season in a home matchup with a high-scoring Hurricanes team that's averaging 3.59 goals per game this campaign, fourth in the NHL.

  • McElhinney made only 15 saves in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Panthers. Making only his second start of the season, McElhinney did little to keep his team in the game on a wild night in which seven of the game's 10 goals were scored in the second period. The veteran backup likely won't see action again until the end of the month when the Lightning play a back-to-back against the 'Canes, as Monday's effort did little to suggest McElhinney is reliable enough to give Andrei Vasilevskiy more rest.

  • McElhinney will guard the home net in Monday's game versus the Panthers, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. McElhinney was fantastic in his season debut, steering away 23 of 24 shots to defeat the Predators. He's getting the nod Monday even though the Lightning aren't playing back-to-back games. The Panthers should be a tough opponent, as they've averaged 3.08 goals per game and posted a 32.4 power-play percentage.

  • McElhinney turned aside 23 of 24 shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Predators. The Lightning never trailed in the contest, and McElhinney wasn't particularly busy. He was only beat by Dante Fabbro's power-play goal in the third period. The 37-year-old McElhinney won't see much playing time this year, but his start Monday was designed to give Andrei Vasilevskiy a rare night off. Expect McElhinney to return to the backup role for Tuesday's second half of the back-to-back in Nashville.
