Quick Strikes: Lightning players make memes, Steve Yzerman approves of his bobblehead

And the Crunch have made franchise history.

NHL: Washington Capitals at Tampa Bay Lightning Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Lightning

-During the Bolts Family Game Night, Tampa Bay Lightning players were asked to make memes out of pictures featuring their teammates. The results were classic!

“I (Alex Killorn) used to play this at Harvard!” - Brayden Point

-It was Steve Yzerman bobblehead night during the Syracuse Crunch game on Saturday, and the man himself stopped by to check out the Lightning’s AHL club and to give his bobble official approval.

(Nice coat, Stevie Y. I like it!)

-This year’s Lightning team and the players on it have broken a lot of NHL and team records. How does it feel to be aware that you’re making history?

-Anton Stralman didn’t get to wear his St. Patrick’s Day jersey this past weekend, but here’s what it looked like:

-I see you, Killorn - Anthony Cirelli - J.T. Miller. I see you.

-There’s been a programming change for those in the Tampa area for the Lightning’s game against the Phoenix Coyotes tonight:

-Local Lightning fans can catch a watch party Wednesday night for their game against the Washington Capitals!

The Crunch

-Maybe the Syracuse Crunch’s identity comes down to the tenacity the team as whole shows, even when they’re screwing up?

-This season’s Crunch has already proven that they’ll be remembered in the team’s history books, regardless of what comes next.

The Others

-Mike McKenna, who is currently with AHL Lehigh Valley, is too cool for school.

The way he just accepts and folds his hands at the end is just...priceless.

-The Adirondack Thunder wore Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtle-themed jerseys during their game Saturday night. Turtle power!
