The Tampa Bay Lightning are an NHL team that plays in Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference. The Lightning plays their home games in Tampa, Florida at the Amalie Center. They entered the league as an expansion team playing their first season in 1992.
The team is often referred to as the Bolts and they have made the Stanley Cup Finals just one time across the Lightning’s young history. In the early 2000s Tampa had a young core of Vincent Lecavalier, Brad Richards, Martin St. Louis and Fredrik Modin and began to show some real promise. With goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin playing excellent in the 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Lightning made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals and they ended up winning the cup against the Calgary Flames.
With one of the best players in the NHL in Steven Stamkos, the Lightning are once again one of the best teams in the NHL. They made it all the way to the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals, where they lost to the Chicago Blackhawks. Stamkos and the Lightning have been very competitive over the last five years and should continue to be one of the better teams in the NHL.
Along with Stamkos, the Lightning have players like Tyler Johnson, Ryan Callahan, Ondrej Palat and goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy that are all key to their future.
