Leafs vs. Bolts: A battle of last season's cellar dwellers
There's just not much left.
It's hard to believe, really, that the Tampa Bay Lightning were Stanley Cup champions just four years ago. The lockout came between then and now, of course, but all that's left with the Bolts is Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and some members of the medical and training staff.
New owners. New GM, coach and coaching staff, and an entirely different roster from the one which defeated Calgary to win the '04 Cup.
The new-look Lightning, re-made again last summer, make an intriguing challenge for the Maple Leafs tonight. Too bad Pat Burns isn't on hand to say hello to Barry Melrose.
Talk to you after the first period.
