Tampa Bay Lightning Announce 2014 Preseason Schedule

Earlier today, the Tampa Bay Lightning organization officially announced their 2014 Preseason Schedule set to kick off Tuesday, September 23rd.

It may seem as if the off-season just began, and for all intents and purposes, it really has; however, the new season will be here a lot sooner than you think. In fact, it will be here in just about three months.

Of course, this seems like forever in the grand scheme of things; however, when you think about all the work that is left to be done in between now and then, this really isn’t much time at all.

Speaking of then, there is some exciting news coming out of the Bolts Nation today! The Tampa Bay Lightning have officially announced their 2014 Preseason Schedule.

All of the action is set to kick off at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Tuesday, September 23rd when the Lightning faces off with Shea Weber and the Nashville Predators at 7:30 p.m.

The preseason schedule will feature three games at home at the Forum, two games on the road, and one game just down the interstate at the BB&T Center in Sunrise.

In that time, the Bolts will face off with three teams; Weber and the Nashville Predators, Jamie Benn and the Dallas Stars, and Jonathan Huberdeau and the Florida Panthers.

Here is a look at the 2014 Preseason Schedule courtesy of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
