TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos is back playing after missing 45 games with a broken right shin.

Stamkos, out since getting hurt Nov. 11 at Boston, was in the lineup for Thursday night's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Stamkos received a partial standing ovation during pregame introductions, when it was announced that the centre was the new team captain.

Right wing Ryan Callahan, acquired Wednesday by Tampa Bay from the New York Rangers for former team captain Martin St. Louis, made his Lightning debut.
