Last night’s Lightning-Panthers game not only featured an astronaut watching hockey, but also an awesome military homecoming during a break in the action.
If you were watching last night’s Lightning-Panthers in Tampa Bay then you might have noticed a bit of an oddity by the Florida bench.
Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust has been known to get under the skin of opposing teams time and again, and it’s pretty safe to say he did that (and more) on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning. During the second period in Tampa, Prust laid a very solid body check on Ben Bishop, the
Max Pacioretty is a very good hockey player on the Montreal Canadiens. Steven Stamkos is a very good hockey player on the Tampa Bay Lightning. On Monday night, Pacioretty had an unofficial assist on Stamkos’ 38th goal of the year, which is not very ideal for Montreal.
Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter typically isn’t considered a dirty player around the National Hockey League, but he’ll likely be getting a call from the Department of Player Safety after this play on Tuesday night.
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Cedric Paquette made the very unfortunate decision to confront Zdeno Chara during the third period of Tuesday’s game in Boston, shoving the gigantic Bruins defenseman shortly after a whistle.
It didn’t take Steven Stamkos too long this season to remind us all just how dominant he can be. The Lightning captain netted three goals on 12 shots in Tampa’s 7-1 trouncing of the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night, his eighth career hat trick and arguably the most impressive we’ve seen the forward since the
Monday night’s Canadiens-Lightning game in Tampa Bay might have provided hockey fans with the best save of the young NHL season, and it wasn’t even made by a goaltender. Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman made a huge sliding kick save to deny Jiri Sekac of a game-tying rebound goal in the second period. Stralman did a
Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas will likely receive the first suspension of this NHL season after this hit he threw on Scottie Upshall on Thursday night. Gudas blatantly targeted Upshall’s head with a vicious elbow, leaving the Panthers forward seriously shaken up as a result. Gudas wasn’t given a penalty for the high hit,
There were whispers in Tampa of an alternate jersey for the Lightning’s 2014-15 and before the actual (dull) new jersey was revealed, the players were treated to an even worse option. The team created a version that included a TON of palm trees lining the bottom of the jersey along with the sleeves. Most players
The Tampa Bay Lightning unveiled a new alternate jersey this weekend and it’s dull. With the team set to open the regular season in less than two weeks with a 4-game homestand, they were apparently seeking to give fans a little build-up excitement, especially with the Bucs uneventful start to 2014. While the simplicity is
The photos you see above shows a couple new awesome billboards erected by the Lightning in Tampa Bay recently. Take a look at the billboard on the left-hand side first. Seems to be your typical, run-of-the-mill advertisement showing an action photo to promote the team’s upcoming season, right? Well, then you pan to the right and
