Add Tampa Bay Lightning forward Mark Recchi's name to the list of healthy scratches for tonight's games.

Recchi, along with teammate Gary Roberts, have been told they won't be in the lineup for tonight's contest against the Penguins, as the club tries to make something happen on the trade front between now and Wednesday's 3pm ET deadline.

Scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, Recchi has accumulated 13 goals and 32 assists for 45 points in 62 games this season.

For Roberts, the 42-year-old veteran left winger was placed on waivers Tuesday. The Lightning had been talking to teams about trading Roberts but decided to put him on waivers and allow anyone with an interest to put in a claim.

If he isn't claimed by noon tomorrow, there's still a three-hour window where he could conceivably be traded.
