New life in Tampa for former Senator Brian Lee

TAMPA – Brian Lee had a hard time staying in the lineup in Ottawa, so coming to Tampa and getting slotted right into the top six has given him a nice chance to jumpstart his career.
“He’s played well for us,” said Tampa coach Guy Boucher.
He’s a big body, he’s played physical for us, and he made two terrific plays to help us win the other day (against the New York Rangers). He’s helped us.”
Lee, staying in hotel just across the parking lot from the St. Pete Times Forum, caught up with a couple of his former teammates on Monday night, but said Tuesday’s game would be all business.
“I play for this team now,” he said.
“Tampa is my team now. It’s just another team over there now as far as I’m concerned.
“I’ll have a couple of friends over there before and after the game, but no friends during.”
Asked if he would be following the usual custom of pinning some money on the bulletin board as an incentive to beat his former team, he stickhandled.
“I don’t know if we’re allowed to say that,” he said.
Which pretty much said it all.
