The plans start as low as $220 for all ten games -- tremendous value at about $22 per game.

The so-called "Rivalry Plan" features match-ups with Atlantic Division opponents the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, and Detroit Red Wings -- games likely to be sell-outs with a high percentage of away fans -- and pairs those high-profile games with ones against less-popular teams (in Tampa Bay) like the Edmonton Oilers, San Jose Sharks, and Arizona Coyotes.

The "Weekday Plan" and "Weekend Plan" are both pretty straightforward and suit the needs of a fan who can only make it to the Tampa Bay Times Forum on a specific schedule. The "Weekday Plan" will get fans in to see Martin St. Louis return to Tampa Bay on 11/26, while the "Weekend Plan" includes the regular season finale versus the Boston Bruins, with potential playoff implications should the Lightning season look as good on-ice as it does right now on paper.

Finally, the "Home Opener" plan will obviously include the 10/9 game against the Florida Panthers, along with match-ups with the Philadelphia Flyers (to see Vincent Lecavalier?) and the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.
