-The Tampa Bay Lightning spent yesterday getting ready for today’s preseason tilt against Carolina.
By many accounts, the practice was a high-spirited, competitive affair.
Physicality ramping up at today’s scrimmage. A few big hits dished out, some pushing and shoving, some slashes behind the play. Guys are fighting for spots, and the competition is fierce. #Bolts— Bryan Burns (@BBurnsNHL) September 16, 2019
"When camp's hard, when it's detailed, when you set the tone immediately, it gives you a better chance to have that good start which we've had the last couple of years.
