TAMPA – And, this is why it's the preseason.
With a lineup that included a bit more veteran presence, the Tampa Bay Lightning took to home ice for the first time since raising the Stanley Cup overhead and parading around the ice on July 7. But the second preseason of the game looked, uh, nothing like that memorable summer night.
Not that there was any expectation of an intensity and focus to match that night, but with roster spots open to start the regular season in less than two weeks, there was not a whole lot of anything to suggest any job is ready to be filled before October 12.
