McElhinney will start Thursday in Minnesota.

McElhinney gave up two goals on 19 shots in the Lightning's 3-1 loss in New Jersey on Sunday. It was a rare night where holding the opposition to two goals wasn't good enough for a Lightning netminder and moved McElhinney to 3-3-1 with a 3.17 GAA and .906 SV%. The Wild offence has been solid as of late, so he'll probably give up a couple of goals but should reward his owners with a 'W' tonight.

McElhinney will start Monday against the Islanders.

McElhinney allowed three goals on 24 shots in the Lightning's loss to the Hurricanes on October 30th. Andrei Vasilevskiy has started seven of the last eight games but McElhinney will start the front-end of the Lightning's back-to-back vs. the Islanders. The veteran netminder has gone 1-1-1 with a 3.00 GAA and .916 SV% in three starts at Amalie Arena this season.

McElhinney will start Saturday vs. the Hurricanes.

McElhinney stopped 32 of 34 shots in the Lightning's win in Chicago on November 21st. Andrei Vasilevskiy started the last four games, including last night, so McElhinney will face his former team on Saturday. He has won three in a row but lost in his only other start vs. Carolina, allowing four goals on 44 shots in a 4-3 OT defeat.

McElhinney leads the Lightning onto the ice for warmups.

McElhinney will face his former team right out of the gate. The veteran netminder went 20-11-2 with a 2.58 GAA and .912 SV% in 33 appearances with the Carolina Hurricanes last year. He signed on with Tampa Bay this summer and that will make him an excellent spot-start option on many occasions this season, but this is a tough matchup for his first start of the season.

McElhinney will start Game 4 vs. the Bruins.

McElhinney stopped 29 of 31 shots in the Hurricanes 2-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 3. McElhinney has been great for Carolina during the postseason, stopping 100 of the 106 shots (.943 SV%) that he has faced in three and a half games. McElhinney will need to be as good as he was in Game 3 to give Carolina a chance to stay alive because TuukkaRask has been outstanding in the opposite crease.
