You should be aware of some notable games before tickets go on sale if you are not planning to attend multiple games, such as a potential Stanley Cup Final matchup that takes place early in the season when the Avalanche comes to Amalie Arena on October 23rd. A rematch of the Eastern Conference Finals on November 13th against the Islanders. A tug on the heartstrings when Yanni Gourde will return to Tampa on November 24th for the first time since being selected by the Kraken in the Expansion Draft. To end the calendar year, the Canadiens return to Amalie Arena for the first time since the Lightning won Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals last season, on December 28th.

As you would expect, tickets directly from Ticketmaster will most likely sell quickly, so have your accounts ready, card updated, and any other information required, or you may be on the receiving end of purchasing second-hand tickets at a higher price.

See you in Thunder Alley!
