TAMPA — The NHL unveiled its revised schedule, and while the Lightning will still have most of February off, their break won’t be a continuous one.

They had just three games — all on the road — to make up. Two of them will be played on back-to-back nights Feb. 10 in Colorado (9 p.m. EST) and Feb. 11 in Arizona (9:30).

Their other postponed game will be made up on Feb. 15 at New Jersey at 7 p.m.

The Lightning will have a week off following that game before their regular season resumes Feb. 22 against the Edmonton Oilers at Amalie Arena.

The Lightning will still have just six games in the month of February, beginning with a Feb. 1 home date against San Jose. The All-Star weekend is Feb. 4-5 in Las Vegas. Their other game this month is the Stadium Series outdoor game Feb. 26 in Nashville.

The team had one other scheduling adjustment on the revamped schedule, swapping dates on a back-to-back road series to Columbus and Long Island. The Lightning will now play April 28 at Columbus (7 p.m.) and April 29 at the Islanders (7:30).
