We’ve already mentioned a few times the Karma going for the Lightnings:
That they played with character and professionalism on the final day of the season, though they didn’t need the game (as, for example, the Giants did in their Super Bowl year).
And that a bunch of Tampa Bay players shaved their heads the week before the playoffs to raise funds for pediatric cancer charities.
And now, today, assistant coach Wayne Fleming is undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor.
Good luck and prayers to him, obviously. Good luck to the good Karma Bolts!
Speaking of which, Games 3 and 4 in Tampa are on back-to-back nights. Tonight’s game is on Versus, but tomorrow Versus is showing Philly-Boston. So the Capitals-Lightning game will be on NHL Network at 7.
