TAMPA — There’s no hockey right now, but Lightning fans can still get their fix in some form. Fox Sports Sun will re-live nine wins from this season.

Starting March 22 and running through April 14 (tentatively scheduled depending on what happens with the NHL), Fox Sports Sun will re-air games in prime time. The network is also replaying Heat, Magic and Panthers games. It is working on plans for Rays game, but Major League Baseball is not in season yet so that will look different.
