The Tampa Bay Lightning have entered into a partnership with Amalie Oil Co., and as part of that agreement have renamed their home Amalie Arena.

Amalie Oil has been located in the port of Tampa since 1977 and is owned by the Barkett family. The arena was known as the Tampa Bay Times Forum since Jan. 1, 2012.

"I am pleased that the Barkett family has chosen to partner with our organization in displaying the good name of its local, family-owned company on our facility," Lightning chairman Jeff Vinik said. "Like Tampa Bay Sports and Entertainment, the Barkett family and Amalie Oil are heavily vested in our community, providing jobs and stimulating economic activity. The brothers share our vision and values and we look forward to a long and healthy partnership working together to achieve business and community objectives."

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.

— Nashville captain Shea Weber in an interview with the Predators website
