The two-time Stanley Cup Champions, Tampa Bay Lightning, wrap up their exhibition season this week with two trips to Detroit and Washington.
After that, it’s time to focus on the regular-season opener at Amalie Arena on Oct. 19 against the Florida Panthers.
The Bolts will raise their championship banner that night, then it will be all business as they begin the grind toward what they hope will be a third-consecutive Cup.
Although they’ll have new look on the ice following the departure of several players through free agency and the expansion draft, the core of the team remains intact.
