Smaby Recalled; Boyle to Return

Yahoo! Sports is reporting the Lightning has recalled defenseman Matt Smaby from Norfolk.

Smaby will not play tonight, however, as Damian Cristodero reports in his St. Pete Times blog that it looks as though Dan Boyle will return to action tonight.

Cristodero states Doug Janik was slated to be the sixth defenseman tonight even though it is Smaby's "turn," because Smaby is coming off playing four straight days. Janik, however, was practicing with the injured players and scratches and not the starters--a group that included Smaby.

Update: tampabaylightning.com’s “Insider” is reporting Boyle was removed from the injured reserve list and will play.

With Boyle and Smaby both active and with the Lightning, the club now must decide which defenseman, Smaby or Janik, goes to Norfolk.
