Need a Lightning fix while the NHL is on hiatus due to the lockout? on Thursday nights, Sun Sports will be airing classic games for viewers. Two games - the inaugural game as well as the night Dave Andreychuk broke the NHL power play goal record - have already aired. Next on the list is some of the biggest games in team franchise history including the Stanley Cup championship Game 7 victory against Calgary. The schedule and the full release from the team are below:
The Tampa Bay Lightning announced today that Sun Sports will air a classic Lightning game each Thursday night at 8 p.m. during the month of November. Sun Sports will continue to air classic Lightning games on Thursday nights throughout the year.
This Thursday at 8 p.m., Sun Sports will air the Lightning’s first playoff series victory over the Washington Capitals on April 20, 2003. Martin St. Louis scored his fifth goal of the series while on a power play in triple overtime to win the best-of-seven series. The Lightning dropped the first two games of the series but then battled back to win four consecutive contests to advance into the second round of the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.
Other games featured this month include the Lightning’s Game 7 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern Conference Final in 2004, St. Louis’ thrilling Game 6 double overtime goal in Calgary in the Stanley Cup Final, the Lightning defeating the Flames in Game 7 on home ice to capture their first-ever championship and the Stanley Cup banner raising to begin the 2005-06 season.
