The Ducks, who were off Monday after three games in four nights, will look to re-boot their power play when they play the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.

Anaheim has only scored once in its 23 man-advantage situations in January following an 0-for-3 performance Sunday in which it struggled to generate shots during a 2-1 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Tampa Bay goalie Ben Bishop is 6-0-1 with a 1.03 goals-against average against the Ducks but he played Monday and the Lightning could start backup goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy in what would be his first game against the Ducks.

The Lightning, 11-14-3 since center Steve Stamkos went down with a knee injury in November, are coming off a 2-1 victory over the Kings.

Tampa Bay is also without winger Ryan Callahan (hip) and defenseman Victor Hedman, who sat out Monday’s game against L.A. because of an illness.

The Ducks are 0-4 against the Lightning since the 2013-14 season. The game starts at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast by Fox Sports Prime and 830 AM.

Etc.

Ducks forward Stefan Noesen and defenseman Shea Theodore were re-assigned.
