Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Tickets

The Tampa Bay Lightning, established in 1992, are also known by their nickname the Bolts, which was one of a number of designs that the team displayed on their jerseys. Current members of the Eastern Conference, the Bolts play their home games at Tampa Bay Times Forum, formerly called St. Pete Times Forum, located in sunny Tampa, Florida. The Bolts played their first game in late 1992 against the hearty Chicago Blackhawks and stunned crowds when they took the match 7-3. Over their first four seasons the Lightning soared to excellence, earning the hearts of hometown fans and making Tampa Bay Lightning tickets a popular item on wish lists.

Those looking to embrace the potentially inclement weather can pick up Tampa Bay Lightning tickets to see a game for themselves at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in downtown Tampa. The team had to fight hard to make it in the league. Back in the late 1980s, the NHL announced it was looking to expand its reach in Florida, and two rival groups - one from Tampa, one from St. Petersburg - opted to vie for a chance to have a home team. Though it seemed as if the potential owners for St. Petersburg, Peter Karmanos and Jim Rutherford, had the decision in the bag, the bid ultimately went to a pair of brothers who knew the sport back and forth - NHL Hall of Famer's Phil and Tony Esposito.

Regrettably, behind the scenes financial and management issues rocked the team until it began to impact their on-ice performance. Following the team's descent to the bottom of the NHL, they caught an upward swing in 2002, that saw the Bolts head to the playoffs and move into the conference semifinals for the first time in the team's history.

While they fell quickly to the New Jersey Devils, hometown fans were nonetheless pleased with the resurgence of their team's on-ice play. Then in 2004, the Lightning struck when they unexpectedly took home the ultimate professional hockey victory of the Stanley Cup.

Florida might not seem like the biggest hockey state, but don't suggest that to fans of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The franchise has gained quite a following over its short lifespan, and Tampa Bay Lightning fans eagerly await the next Stanley Cup victory! Don't miss your chance to see the Bolts LIVE!
