They come to Orlando with back-to-back Stanley Cup championships, and are looking to be the first club to three-peat since the New York Islanders of the early 1980’s.
The Tampa Bay Lightning take the ice against their cross-state rival Florida Panthers at 7PM at the Amway Center on Tuesday, Oct. 5 in a pre-season match. The NHL regular season begins the following week in Tampa with the Pittsburgh Penguins in town.
The Lightning have renewed their Orlando affiliation with the East Coast Hockey League’s Solar Bears for the fourth-consecutive season. Tickets to the exhibition are available online at Ticketmaster.
