Yanni! Hawks Choke on a Gourde

  Tampa, Fla. — 401 Channelside Drive tonight resembled 1901 West Madison Street in Chicago as the Blackhawks fans packed the building and began flexing their vocal cords in the pre-game.  It would be the Lightning fans flexing in a frenzy as they exited Amaile Arena.

Night – Cap Hattrick in Tampa

  Tampa, Fla. – – The Washington Capitals got the early jump tonight, flying out of the door and an early too many men on the ice penalty is just what the Caps needed to open up the scoring.  A tic, tack, toe power play as T.J. Oshie rocketed one from the low slot past […]

Tampa, Fla. — As we discussed today on the show with my “matrix,” the Lightning entered tonight on playoff chance life support.  To get another oxygen tank I thought two points was not only a hope, but a need. With both goalies, the Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Rangers’ Antti Raanta,   doing their best […]

Hedman Hits Big Extra Point

Tampa, Fla. – More trade ripples in Tampa Bay on Wednesday as Valtteri Filppula was the player that joined Bishop and Boyle on the list of former Tampa Bay Lightning.   The Lightning hosting cellar dweller Carolina at home would be a great barometer if this Lightning team would keep hanging on to what appears only […]
