The Stanley Cup extended its lease in Tampa Bay for another year.

After skating past the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 Wednesday in Amalie Arena, The Tampa Bay Lightning hoisted their second Stanley Cup in a row. There seems to be an endless supply of championship merchandise, so we went through and made a list of some of our favorites.

Lightning strikes twice

This T-shirt is flying off the online shelves at $29.99, and understandably so. “Lightning strikes twice” has a catchy ring to it and the two Stanley Cups will make sure passersby remember that the Lightning are back-to-back champs.

BreakingT

BreakingT earned their name Wednesday night. The company released a handful of new shirts to commemorate the Lightning’s win. The “Big Cat” shirt ($28) featuring Andrei Vasilevskiy and his love for kittens is, well, the best celebration of the Conn Smythe Trophy winner. But the “Big Rig” one ($28) with a shirtless Pat Maroon above the years of his consecutive Stanley Cup wins is almost too good to pass up.

Stanley Cup replica

This Stanley Cup replica might be the holy grail of Stanley Cup merch. It’s not easy on the pocketbook ($399.99), but just look at that shine and Lightning logo. And don’t miss the three years of each Lightning Stanley Cup win on the front.

This one is pricey, but then again, the Lightning are back-to-back champs. July 8, 2021.
