The Stanley Cup Playoffs are here.

The time of year when the level of play rises. The stakes grow infinitely higher. And the heat and humidity follow suit.

Around here, it’s not uncommon for a fan to lose as much water weight at a plaza party as Nikita Kucherov does on the ice.

And that’s the way we like it.

Bolts Nation has embraced the playoff heat for 10 of the last 11 years—we know the drill by now. And Tampa Bay Sports does, too. They’re currently loaded with performance tees, sweat-wicking caps and other Lightning attire perfect for when summer comes early around the bay. And because we’re in the playoff spirit, we dropped a spotlight on a few of our favorite pieces down below. Stay cool and Go Bolts.
