The 2013-14 NHL season comes with a lot of new opportunities. New divsion alignments, new bodies in Lightning uniforms and an old friend turning in to a new enemy are just part of the storylines to look forward to.
After missing out of the playoffs last season, the Lightning will get their first full season under head coach Jon Cooper. The Bolts will drop the puck against the Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins to open up the regular season. Tamp Bay will make the trip south to electrify the home crowd at the Forum for their home opener against the Florida Panthers.
On of the must see games will come November 27th when former Lightning captain Vincent Lacavalier returns to the only team he had known as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers.
Here is a look at the Lightnings' 2013-2014 regular season schedule.
