Tampa, Florida 2021-10-12 08:53:16 –
Hockey sleep has not been achieved since the early 1980s. This year is the year Tampa Bay Lightning wants to change that.
The road to the Stanley Cup Championship for the third consecutive year begins at the Amalie Arena on Tuesday night when Bolt will face the Pittsburgh Penguins. At night with the banner, the electricity in the building is incredible.
Arena fans will see many familiar faces sporting blue and white, but will also see some new faces. Here are some of the moves Lightning has made during this off-season:
- Yanny Gould
- Berkeley Goodrow
- Break Coleman
- Luke Shen
- Tyler Johnson
- Corey Perry
- Zack Bogosian
- Pierre Edouard Bellmare
You can see the complete roster below:

Tampa Bay has also returned director John Cooper. Those who signed a three-year extension on Monday..
This season has finally returned to its normal schedule and will look a little different than in the last two years. Fans tired of seeing the same seven teams throughout the season (Florida Panthers, Carolina Hurricanes, Nashville Predators, Detroit Red Wings, Columbus Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks, Dallas Stars) will be delighted to see their regular schedule again. Probably.
With the reorganization last year, the department has also returned to normal.
Bolt will start the season against teams he hasn’t seen since February 11, 2020. However, the team misses a major part of the opening night. The face of the penguins franchise Sidney Crosby will miss at least the first match of the year as he deals with wrist injuries.
And as if it wasn’t enough to meet another team for the first time in a while and raise the banner, another emotional element will be added to the opening round on Tuesday. Longtime national anthem singer Sonya Bryson Kirksey returns to the ice and sings the Star-Spangled Banner after a fierce battle with COVID-19. She spent a considerable amount of time in ICU, but recovered when the community gathered around her. If her name is announced before the match, you can expect big applause.

You can catch the season opening match against Pittsburgh at 7:30 pm on ESPN.
