TAMPA, Fla. — Lightning hockey is back.

It's been a painful offseason for fans as they've had months to relive a heartbreaking first round sweep in last year's Stanley Cup Playoffs at the hand of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

But it's a new season and the Bolts are ready to reclaim their spot at the top of the NHL.

The road to Lord Stanley's Cup begins Tuesday night with the first tuneup game of the year. The Lightning begin the preseason on home ice at AMALIE Arena when they take on the Carolina Hurricanes.

One thing still looming over the team is Brayden Point's contract.

Point's 41 goals were tied for second on the team last season and he was third on the team with 92 points. He and the Bolts have still not been able to come to an agreement on a new deal.

After seven preseason games, the Bolts will take on the Florida Panthers on Thursday, October 3 in Tampa to open up the regular season.
