The Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League have called Amalie Arena home since construction was completed on the facility prior to the 1996-97 season.
The Lightning, led by superstar captain Steven Stamkos and perennial Norris trophy candidate defenseman Victor Hedman, are one of the most exciting teams in the NHL. The Bolts have advanced to the Eastern Conference Final each of the last two seasons. In 2015, the Lightning made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final before losing to the Chicago Blackhawks four games to two.
During their two decades at Amalie Arena, the Lightning have qualified for the playoffs eight times, gone to the Eastern Conference Final four times, made it to the Stanley Cup Final twice and hoisted the Stanley Cup once after defeating the Calgary Flames in seven games in 2004,
