Ice hockey is storming into Florida
Established in 1992, the Lightning joined the NHL alongside fellow expansion team the Ottawa Senators. Named after the thunderstorms common within the Tampa and general Florida area, the team proudly uses a flashing lightning bolt as its logo. While the tropical storms are hardly welcomed by locals, the community spirt that has developed as a result of recovery efforts over the years helps bond the team to the city. The team adopted their appropriately coloured in blue and white to represent the ocean. In the formative years of the franchise, the Lightning bounced around a couple of home stadiums before settling into the freshly constructed Amalie Arena in 1996. The impressive 19,000 seat stadium provided the team with a more significant identity and helped attract more supporters. Team mascot ThungerBug is present at all games and energises the crowd, taking extra time to make sure the kids in attendance leave with memories they can cherish.

A championship to savour
With a core of youthful players, the Lightning looked destined for success at the turn of the century. Led by left winger Dave Andreychuk, the team would go on to top their division in 2003 and make it through to the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Facing off against the New Jersey Devils, the Lightning could only manage one win as they were bundled out of the playoffs. Coming back stronger than ever the next season, the team went on to qualify for the Stanley Cup finals against the Calgary Flames. In a nail-biting series that would require a Game 7 to split the teams, the Lightning came out victorious thanks to two goals from Ukrainian winger Ruslan Fedotenko in the deciding match. Fedotenko was immortalised in the history of the franchise and it still common to see his number 17 jersey worn by fans at matches.
