Game Thread: Florida Panthers at Tampa Bay Lightning

LBC's Discussion and Commentary Forum: Game 1


Panthers (0-0 0P) vs Lightning (0-0 0P)


Pointless now to ask where all of that time went after early April, as almost six months have clicked past since our last taste of local regular season action. No need to dwell any longer on draft lotteries, playoffs, the draft itself, free agency, development camp, rookie camp, training camp, the exhibition season, et al as a revitalized roster hits the ice in Florida's debut, version 21 (give or take a lockout here and there) leaving us with nothing left to do but observe. And gripe. And cheer. Hopefully more of the latter.

From all of us, a collective thanks to each of you for being a substantial part of LBC as we launch our seventh(!) season on SB Nation, and a special shout to Francisco who created the shiny new graphic above. Win or lose we'll have lots of fun down the road.
