The Tampa Bay Lightning is continuing it’s support in the community with Friday Night Ice. Tonight they took over the Tampa Bay Skating Academy in Oldsmar to put a Lightning spin on high school games. Here was the schedule:
7:30 p.m. – Mitchell vs. East Lake (Bright House Sports Network)
8:45 p.m. – Jesuit vs. Berkeley Prep
9:00 p.m. – Gaither Sickles vs. Freedom (Bright House Sports Network)
10:15 p.m. – Newsome vs. Palm Harbor
Rolling Thunder, the Lightning’s fan mobile truck was on hand along with the Lightning Girls to cheer the teams on and the Bolt Brigade to energize the arena. The Lightning is committed to developing local sports, this is their way to support high school hockey. What a thrill it must be for the high school kids to have the Lightning Girls and the Bolt Brigade cheering them on and to be aired on TV. This is just one of the many ways that the Lightning are giving back to the community.
