'Meet the Lightning' shows players' off-ice talents
With the Lightning season opening up on Thursday, the Times decided to give readers an up-close look at what some of the players are like off the ice.
How good of a handyman is wing Ryan Callahan? What "Friends" star did Brian Boyle meet while in New York? Who was the "Big Bad Wolf" 'for Halloween? How did Tyler Johnson meet Wayne Gretzky, and how was dinner at the Great One's house? How exactly did Alex Killorn get into Harvard? What sparked Victor Hedman's passion for flying planes?
Find out to all these questions, and more, with a video project put together by Times photographer Dirk Shadd and myself. Enjoy!
