Tonight’s game is a big one. The Lightning are in Carolina to take on the Hurricanes in what is shaping up to be a very pivotal game in the race for a playoff spot. With neither the Jets nor the Capitals in action on this Saturday evening, the Lightning have a shot to move just two points back of 8th place. That’s a far cry from the distant gap that once stood between the Lightning and the top-8. This team is playing with heart right now. The Bolts are winning games on determination, and drive more than skill. Last night’s game against the New York Rangers was a perfect example of how hard work and effort can overcome a great deal of adversity. Because of that victory, the Lightning sit with a 13% shot at making the playoffs. With a victory against the Hurricanes, that number can climb even higher. Let’s take a look at some pre-game notes and Mike’s Three Keys to the Game.
