On the road again

28

October

The Lightning have arrived in New York, where they hope to win their first road game tomorrow night against the Rangers.

So how important is this three-game, four-day sweep into Gotham, New Jersey and Long Island? Ask Brad Richards.

"The desperation level will definitely come up," he said. "We need a win on the road. It's going to be a tough week. We're a couple games above .500 and we've worked hard at home and we have to back that up by playing well on the road and getting the job done and we'll put ourselves in position at the end of the week."

So what do you think? Why have the Lightning struggled on the road? Is it more than inconsistency? And will their first extended road trip be just the cure to snap the Lightning out of its away-from-the Forum funk?

“The desperation level will definitely come up,” Richards said. “We need a win on the road. It’s going to be a tough week. We’re a couple games above .500 and we’ve worked hard at home and we have to back that up by playing well on the road and getting the job done and we’ll put ourselves in a nice position at the end of the week.”
