The Tampa Bay Lightning begin their quest for another Stanley Cup Tuesday night when they play their first playoff game of the postseason in Toronto. The Maple Leafs are a familiar foe for the Bolts. And if this past week’s game is any indicator, this series is going to get wild.
Here’s the complete Round 1 schedule, including which TV channels here in the Tampa area will be televising the game. It’s a best of 7 series so the first team to 4 wins moves on. The other team’s golf season begins. It’s been a while since we’ve had a boat parade on the Hillsborough River so… Go Bolts!
