Tampa Bay, it’s finally here! The 2021-22 Tampa Bay Lightning home opener at Amalie Arena (Tuesday, October 12th). There’s a bunch of things you’ll want to know before you go see our Back2Back Champions face-off versus the Pittsburgh Penguins in the home opener!
The Tampa Bay Lightning start their campaign for a three-peat. Believe it or not, the Bolts won two Stanley Cups in less than a year. The first one coming on September 28, 2020 in the NHL Bubble. The second one coming just months later, this one at home at Amalie Arena in front of the Lightning faithful and their families. Two very different celebrations for two very different seasons unlike the NHL had ever seen before. Now the NHL goes back to the original season and playoff format going into the 2021-2022 season. The Lightning will play in their first-ever outdoor game in Nashville at the end of February.
So can the Bolts do it again? Only time will tell.
