Lightning preseason schedule
As it did last season, a long road trip highlights the Lightning's preseason schedule. It's not quite as long as this past season's six-games-in-seven nights gantlet, but its four games in five nights, including a matchup with the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks in Winnipeg, will be a grind. The only home game: the preseason finale, Oct. 2 against the Panthers.
