Rays to wear Lightning gear to Toronto



The Rays will wear Lightning t-shirts and caps on their trip to Toronto on Thursday as a show of support. "We want to show support to the boys,'' Maddon said. "They lost a tough one last night, but they're still in pretty good shape. I know Guy will rally the troops.''

Several Lightning players attended Saturday' Rays game as guests of Twins 1B Justin Morneau and wore Twins caps and shirts, but Maddon said he was okay with that. "We forgive them because we wore Blackhawks stuff (during last year's playoffs), let's move forward,'' Maddon said. "We're moving this thing along, we're putting the olive branch out there. We're good.''

Rays OF Matt Joyce hung a Lightning banner across several empty lockers in the Rays clubhouse also.
