Defenseman Dan Girardi shares a veteran's approach to preseason games
Throughout Tampa Bay Lightning training camp, Bolts defenseman Dan Girardi has been kind enough to chronicle his thoughts in what we're calling: In Their Own Words - Girardi's Journal.
Periodically, we'll be checking in with Girardi to get his thoughts on how training camp is progressing or provide a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in the locker room when the players are hanging out. In this newest installment, as told to TampaBayLightning.com beat writer Bryan Burns, Girardi dissects the Bolts' disappointing preseason-opening loss to Carolina on Tuesday and, as a 13-year veteran of the NHL with almost 865 regular season games under his belt, how he approaches the exhibition schedule.
TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning have reduced their training camp roster by seven today, vice president and general manager Julien BriseBois announced. The Lightning now have 54 players remaining in their 2018 Training Camp, presented by Florida Blue.
