FHN Today: Lightning return to New York tied with Rangers



Lightning rangers

After being left for dead a few days ago, the Tampa Bay Lightning have new life as they visit the Rangers in New York tonight in Game 5.

Neither team has won on the road — which means neither team has lost at home.

Should be fun to see what happens.

Regardless, the series will be back in Tampa for Game 6.

A lot of news from this series, from the Avalanche and an update on former Panthers goalie Chris Driedger in this edition of FHN Today.


The Lightning aren’t scared of the ghosts hanging around Madison Square Garden.
