It's been a nostaglic week for Lightning wing J.T. Brown.

Brown returned to Raleigh, N.C. Sunday, scoring a goal in an arena right by where his father, Ted, starred at running back for N.C. State. Then, this weekend, Brown comes home to the St. Paul, Minn area, where Ted played for the Minnesota Vikings, and J.T. played for the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

In this week's "Lightning Strikes" podcast, J.T. Brown discusses why he didn't follow in his father's footsteps in playing football, but how his dad still shaped his path to becoming a professional athlete.
