The Tampa Bay Lightning are home on Saturday at 8 p.m. against the New York Rangers, but forgive the Bolts if that game feels like a continuation of a season-long road stretch.
The game against the Rangers comes after six consecutive road games, and it has been a rocky ride. The Bolts endured their first three-game losing streak of the season.
The Lightning won’t have much time to unpack their suitcases before heading out again for four more road games.
After the New York game, Tampa Bay won’t return to Amalie Arena until March 29 against the Carolina Hurricane.
