On Thursday, April 10, SunSports, regional home of the Tampa Bay Lightning, will premiere the next episode of “Inside the Lightning.” The episode will air at 10:30 PM, after the conclusion of the Lightning/Flyers game.
The episode, to be titled, “The Captain and The Cup,” will focus on former Bolts captain Dave Andreychuk. The current Lightning Vice President of Corporate & Community Affairs, skated in 278 games with the team over the final four seasons of his NHL career. He also captained the team to its first Stanley Cup during the 2003-2004 season. The Hamilton, Ontario native signed with the Lightning in 2001, giving instant veteran leadership to the team.
The episode will be hosted by Kelly Nash, and will feature an on-ice interview with Andreychuk. He’ll reminisce about being in the penalty box for the final moments of the game, and being the first on the team to touch the cup and hoist it over his head. It’s a moment that is now eternally celebrated with a statue located in Thunder Alley outside of the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
