Inside the Lightning: Playoff Hockey to debut on Wednesday night
/ Tampa Bay Lightning
On Wed., July 15, at 8:00 p.m., FOX’s Sun Sports, the regional television home of the reigning Eastern Conference Champion Tampa Bay Lightning, will premiere a brand new episode of "Inside the Lightning" looking back at the Bolts historic run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Featuring exclusive post-season interviews with Lightning players Steven Stamkos, Tyler Johnson, Ben Bishop, Victor Hedman, Ryan Callahan, Anton Stralman and Alex Killorn, along with Head Coach Jon Cooper and General Manager Steve Yzerman, “Inside the Lightning: Playoff Hockey” provides a perfect retrospective on the 2014-15 season that captivated the hearts of Lightning fans everywhere.
The must-watch episode follows a look at the team’s run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs by round. An opening series versus the Detroit Red Wings sparked the team and helped set the tone on what it took to win playoff hockey. It was Ben Bishop’s first playoff series and his first playoff series win. Round two was the grudge match against the Montreal Canadiens, who swept the Bolts in the first round a year ago. Revenge was sweet as the Lightning surged to a 3-0 lead in the series before wrapping things up in Game 6 against Hart and Vezina Trophy-winning goalie Carey Price . The Eastern Conference Final versus the New York Rangers featured a hat trick from Tyler Johnson and two shut outs by Ben Bishop before a Game 7 for the ages. Many players and coaches considered Game 7 the best game the Lightning played in the playoffs overcoming the fact that the Rangers had never lost a playoff Game 7 at home in their history.
A Stanley Cup Final showdown with the Chicago Blackhawks ultimately provided the team with an unforgettable experience and cleared a path for many successful seasons to come for the young, driven team.
