TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy is returning after missing 14 games with a fractured left foot to face the Toronto Maple Leafs in a matchup between the NHL's top two teams.

Lightning coach Jon Cooper says last season's Vezina Trophy finalist will start Thursday night against Toronto.

Vasilevskiy went 9-3-1 with a 2.30 goals-against-average before the injury in mid-November. Backup goalie Louis Domingue has played well during Vasilevskiy's absence, helping Tampa Bay enter Thursday on a seven-game winning streak.
