Decided to google it, and nothing's changed since I posted this on 3/21 after the game at OTT...
Called downtown to get some scoop on the new third...no (d)ice. Rep said they have seen no images, don't know where to get them and can't even say for sure the team colors black & blue are in it but that's the rumor. Google turned up nothing. They are really good at keeping stuff under wraps.
However, I did find this bit in SI, dated 3/13. Interesting wording:
The Tampa Bay Lightning could be getting a new look next season.
While talking about the team’s new season ticket offers during Thursday’s broadcast, Sun Sports announcer Rick Peckham mentioned that the packages will include a “new third jersey” for 2014-15.
While the team hasn’t officially said the new jersey will replace the current third, which was introduced in 2008 and has the word “Bolts” running diagonally down the front, it has confirmed that a new one is in the pipeline, calling it “Jersey 2.0.”
“[T]he Jersey 2.0 program marks our first significant follow-up to the micro-chipped jersey concept that we introduced in 2011-12,” Lightning Chief Operating Officer Steve Griggs said in a release on the Lightning web site.
I still have not seen one single sensible explanation for why they can't at least let them wear the pants, socks and gloves containing black that they currently wear with the thirds. "Four out of five hockey fans surveyed recommend black and blue for their team whose colors ARE black and blue"
