    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings, allowing 15 hits and 11 runs while lasting just seven innings total.

    TAMPA — When Hall of Famer Phil Esposito first saw Lightning prospect Oleg Sosunov, he joked that the 6-foot-8 defenseman could reach the Amalie Arena ceiling.

    The Lightning’s Anthony Cirelli gets checked by the Hurricanes’ Trevor Carrick during the first period of the preseason opener at Amalie Arena. The teams meet again tonight in Raleigh, N.C.
