How To Watch The Tampa Bay Lightning Games Live Without Cable 2022

tampa bay lightning

Although the previous season didn’t end on a happy note for Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team is still in the running for the Stanley Cup this year.

The Lightning won the Stanley Cup Finals for two consecutive years in 2020 and 2021. In the 2022 Stanley Cup Finals, the Lightning played against the Colorado Avalanche. If the Lightning had managed to win that series, it would have made Stamkos the first captain since Denis Potvin to win at least three consecutive titles. Unfortunately for Stamkos and the Lightning, the Avalanche triumphed in six games to become the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions.

It’s a brand new season for Tampa Bay, and this team is definitely one to watch this season.
