in general, Tampa Bay Lightning

Friday, 6 a.m.

In metaphor, it is easy to see them on a line, each with their own particular skill, each with their own individual impact.

A play needs to be made, and they make it. There is talent there, cohesion. Together, they can make a difference. They blend together, stars who make each other better, stars who have brought the Tampa Bay Lightning to the doorstep of a championship. Together, they can change a play, a game, a season.

They are the original Triplets, and fans of the Lightning who take time enough to consider their presence should applaud.

Jeff Vinik, the owner.

Steve Yzerman, the general manager.

Jon Cooper, the coach.
