2013 Tampa Bay Lightning game previews

Goal scoring solves nothing; Bolts at Rags preview

The Bolts have issues, but the leading cause of these issues is not goal production from the likes of Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier.

Don't underestimate the Sabres (preview)

They may be the doormats of the Eastern Conference at this point, but don't write off the Buffalo Sabres, who the Lightning face in Tampa tonight.

Bolts at Penguins preview

The Lightning finish off their weekend road-trip with the Penguins in Pittsburgh. The Penguins may be without Evgeni Malkin tonight, but that doesn't stop the offensive explosiveness that they boast.

The Storm; Bolts vs. Hurricanes preview

Lightning, Hurricanes, the Southeast Division lead... Indeed, a storm is brewing in Raleigh, North Carolina as the two teams square off Saturday evening.

Lightning versus Bruins preview

With weather conditions as they are at the moment in Tampa... They don't call this place "Hockey Paradise" for nothing. Tampa Bay's imposing offense will be tested by the guile of Tuukka Rask and the well rested Bruins tonight.

Lightning versus Maple Leafs preview

The Toronto Maple Leafs are just one example of the high potency of the NHL's Northeast Division. Standings points show how formidable the division is, especially when compared to the NHL's Southeast Division.

Deep breaths; Bolts at Cats preview

The Lightning have not won in six games, and some fans are starting to get nervous about the club and it's prospects for a good season. Keep calm, Lightning fans. There is no panacea, and panicking only makes things worse.


Video preview of tonight vs. Capitals

Raw Charge's own Patti McDonald gives a scouting report preview of tonight's game against the Capitals.

Lightning vs. Capitals preview

Controlling the puck controls the action on ice, and the Lightning would do very well to remember that. Anders Lindback is sick while the Washington Capitals are looking to climb out of the NHL cellar.

The Crunch Bunch; Bolts vs. Habs preview

Five Syracuse Crunch alumni are currently on the Tampa Bay Lightning's roster, two have made their NHL debuts so far this season, a third will do so tonight when the Bolts take on the Montreal Canadiens at Times Palace.
