Tampa’s 2011-12 Television Schedule Announced

The National television schedule was released yesterday – a schedule that features 21 televised games for the Tampa Bay Lightning in the United States that will be split between the VERSUS and NHL networks. Five Bolts’ games will also be aired in Canada on TSN and CBC respectively. Some things to look forward to of the 11 games on VERSUS: Five games at the newly renovated St. Pete Times Forum, three of six road games against the Washington Capitals, and Steve Yzerman’s first return to Detroit since becoming the General Manager.

NHL network game highlights will include Tampa’s return to Boston since the loss in the Eastern Conference finals, the first meeting with the Penuins since the Eastern Conference semi-finals, and two more meetings against the Capitals.

Of the games aired in Canada, highlights include the Lightning’s first game against the Winnipeg Jets and a game against the Montreal Canadiens.
