Here, they are a juggernaut.

Out there on the road, they are another pair of gray pants.

Here, they skate like the wind, and their big guys make muscles, and their goaltender plays as if he is at Hell's Gate.

Out there, they skate in circles, the sometimes they get lost, and they seem as if they are always skating uphill.

There are the Lightning. And they are almost immortal at home. On the road, they are the rubes from out of town.
