For the first time in 270 days, they are out of tomorrows.

For the first time in 108 games, time has expired on them.

A season ran out for the Tampa Bay Lightning Monday night in Chicago. The Bolts lost a 2-0 game to the Chicago Blackhawks, finishing their question for the Stanley Cup. Instead, the Cup will go to the Blackhawks for the third time in six seasons.

The better team won. The Lightning have nothing to be ashamed of. We have a great hockey team here in Tampa Bay. Thanks Bolts for an exciting season. You are in the record books with a lot of firsts and there is always next year. GO BOLTS 2016!

GO LIGHTNING!! We’ll be back next year stronger and wiser for sure, was a great season and a disappointing loss, but kudos to the Hawks, they deserved to win it this year.
