Though Anders Lindback was a big offseason pickup for the Lightning, he's not guaranteed a start in the season opener.

Tampa Bay head coach Guy Boucher would not commit to whether it would be Lindback or Mathieu Garon getting the start Saturday when the Lightning host Washington. But for understandable  reasons.

"I haven't decided that yet," Boucher said after Tuesday morning's practice in Estero. "Right now I'm just trying to let those guys get into game shape, and give them some time to find their best ways. We'll make a decision come Friday night."

Saturday's action, and all of the Lightning's play-by-play, airs on sister station 970 WFLA.
