Up here in Boston, I used to see quite a few Lecavalier shirts when the Lightning were in town. Then nothing for a few years. Now an increasing number of Stamkos jerseys!
Speaking of the Lightning coming to town, pre-sale for single game tickets started today. I went to Ticketmaster and didn't see anything available for opening day for less than $150. Not looking likely that I will get to see the Bolts this season.
