Tampa Bay Lightning 2014-2015 News and Updates
4/21/14 – Tampa Bay faces elimination Tuesday night at the Bell Centre in Game 4 of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. After dropping their first two games at home including a 5-4 OT loss, the Lightning fell 3-2 to the Canadiens in Montreal. A questionable call when the score was tied late in the second period, had Lightning fans ready to bolt referee Francis Charron. He had waved off a TB goal claiming Alex Killorn got in the way of Montreal goalie Carey Price. Even worse, Captain Steven Stamkos took a knee to the head at 16:09 of the second. The Centerman who did return during the third period is expected to play Game 4 as the Tampa Bay Lightning try to force a Game 5 at the Forum (get-in $42).
4/17/14 – Tampa Bay may have dropped the first game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but all is not lost with home-ice advantage and a 3-1 regular season record over No.3 seeded Montreal Canadiens

3/10/14 – Tampa Bay will try to pick up their first win since Steven Stamkos (tibia) returned to the lineup last week. Stamkos became the 10th captain in Tampa Bay Lightning history following a blockbuster Captain for Captain trade with the Rangers.

Steven Stamkos (tibia) is targeting the March 6 date vs. the Sabres as his return. Tampa Bay Lightning tickets are a mere $16 to get in the door. The last time the Sabres and Lightning took the ice to face each other, Tampa Bay came out on top in a close 3-2 victory. Two nights later, the Lightning will host the Boston Bruins in the most expensive game remaining at home, averaging $192.
2/25/14 - The Tampa Bay Lightning have been working hard in the wake of Steven Stamkos' injury to get the team to its current standing of second place in the Atlantic. Teddy Purcell and Ben Bishop have effectively held down the offense, and the squad is just about ready to welcome back their star, who is slated to return just after the March 5 trade deadline. The Lightning are reportedly in talks to make a big, and rather puzzling, move before the deadline: a one-for-one swap with the New York Rangers that would send TB captain Martin St. Louis to NY in exchange for captain Ryan Callahan. If this rumor proves true, you may see a different leader in the lineup for Tampa Bay's first home game back from Sochi on March 6. Tampa Bay Lightning tickets for their match against the Buffalo Sabres start at $17.
2/21/14 - Lightning's Steven Stamkos is on track to return after the Olympic break after missing 41 games with a broken right tibia. While Stamkos would like to play when the season resumes on Feb 27 at Nashville, a March 6 date would be the very latest. Which means, the centre will be back on the ice for the first Lightning home game post-Olympics. Tampa Bay Lightning tickets against the Sabres start at $17 in the upper level, $51 in the 200-level, and $47 in the lower level.
2/4/14 - The Tampa Bay Lightning will play two straight games at home leading into the Olympic break, beginning with Toronto Maple Leafs Thursday (avg. $68) whom the Lightning are neck-and-neck with in the division and Detroit Red Wings Saturday (avg. $115). But first, they’ll finish off their four game road trip in Minnesota for a Tuesday contest against the Wild. Ben Bishop will start for the Bolts tonight, with Decrick Desjardins backing him. At the start of the season the two teams met, and the Lightning came out on top 3-1.
1/29/14 – Tampa Bay may have dropped the first game of their four-game, eight-day road trip, but the Lightning are looking forward. To their star forward that is. Steven Stamkos practiced for the first time earlier in the week after suffering a broken right tibia November 11. Stamkos expects to be back before the Winter Olympic Games and that is good news for the team and fans. Tampa Bay Lightning tickets for remaining games at Tampa Bay Times Forum are averaging $84, down 71 percent since the start of the season and the biggest fall of any team in the league. Expect Lightning tickets to climb when Stamkos returns to the ice in potentially one of the next five games before the break.
2/26/13 - Since becoming in 2004 the second squad from a non-traditional hockey market (after Dallas in 1999) to win a Stanley Cup, the Tampa Bay Lightning have ridden a roller coaster of sorts, between finishing out of the playoff race in four of the seven seasons following, and nearly making the Stanley Cup Finals in 2011, losing a hard-fought series to eventual champion Boston in seven games. This season has the Bolts scrambling to stay in the playoff hunt, dueling with fellow non-traditional market Carolina for Southeast Division supremacy. The Lightning are the NHL leaders in goals per game average, with center Stephen Stamkos leading the charge both in goals scored and in total points team and league-wide. Right wing Martin St. Louis is right on Stamkos's heels, leading the Lightning in assists. Also contributing to the Bolts high-powered offense are wings Cory Comacher, Benoit Pouliot, and Teddy Purcell; veteran center Vincent Lecavalier; and defenseman Victor Hedman. Another defenseman, Sami Salo, has had the good fortune to be on the ice much more often during scoring shifts, as he is one of the NHL's leaders in plus-minus. Defensively, however, the Bolts are another story, as goalies Anders Lindback and Mathieu Garon have had some difficulty keeping the puck out of the net, leading to a goals-against average which is among the worst in the league. Coach Guy Boucher has to be happy with the offense, but he will have his hands full with prodding the Lightning into the playoffs as long as the defense has holes.
