What to do
Lightning vs. Penguins We must remind you that Sunday was the last home game of the Rays' regular season. That means it's a perfect time to get excited for a team with a little more experience playing in the fall. The puck drops tonight in the first preseason home game against Pittsburgh, the defending Eastern Conference champions. The Lightning have new owners and a new coach this season. No. 1 draft choice, Steven Stamkos, will make his first-ever professional appearance in Tampa. On the other side will be a guy who knows a thing or two about being a revered young superstar: Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. 7:30 p.m. St. Pete Times Forum, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. (813) 301-6600. lightning.nhl.com. Tickets start at $8.
