Via Bolts by the Bay: Let's Review: Tampa Bay Lightning
As the Lightning rest during this much needed break, let’s take some time as fans to appreciate the current position. To be only three games under .500 and 9 points out of a playoff spot with 32 games left to play is actually not half bad. I mean, if you were to glance at our injuries list, you can see why. At one point, the Tampa Bay Lightning had nine players out due to injury. During the last game played Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, the team was jokingly called the Tampa Bay Admirals several times. It was appropriate, as the Lightning had four call ups playing for the Lightning. At one point, an entire forward line of AHL call-ups playing together at one point. However, there are your share of negatives attributes that the team must work on fixing if they want any chance at a playoff spot. With a four game win streak going into the All-Star break, it seems like the team is on their way to tweaking its issues..more.
