Well, it may happen on time or it may not but the Lightning are scheduled to start the season at home -- raising their Stanley Cup Banner, thankyouverymuch, against the Philadelphia Flyers on October 13th.
The complete Schedule for the Bolts can be found here.
November 11ths sees the Calgary Flames back in Tampa.... There is no scheduled away-game at Calgary this season\.
October sees a very odd road-swing that starts the team in Buffalo and then out west to Phoenix and Colorado.
The season closes with a home-and-home series against the Atlanta Thrashers, who will most certainly be a thorn in the Lightning's side next season.
IF there is a season.
