Number of the day
79:56 Time Lightning has led through the first two games of the Stanley Cup final (compared with 6:06 for the Blackhawks).
Flashback of the day
Some of the top draft prospects will be in Chicago today, a Cup final tradition that Lightning C Steven Stamkos fondly remembers taking in before getting selected No. 1 overall in 2008. Stamkos got to watch the Red Wings and Penguins in that Stanley Cup final. "I remember being in Detroit, watching there, hoping I could be on this stage someday," Stamkos said. "Here we are, so it's pretty special."
Quote of the day
"As long as they don't need me to back up or anything … it doesn't change anything for me."
