The break in the NHL action hasn’t stopped Tampa Bay Lightning fans from watching a handful of their players compete at a high level. The group of Lightning players playing in Sochi has helped ease the hockey withdrawal symptoms.
Olympic preliminary competition ended on Feb. 16, and with the final seeds established, Lightning fans should get to watch at least one of their players compete into the medal rounds. Tampa Bay doesn’t have anyone on the top-two seeded teams (Sweden, USA), but it does have players on third-seeded Canada and fourth-seeded Finland.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t been a great international showing for the Bolts. As we prepare for the elimination games, here are the individual grades for each Lightning player at the Olympics so far.
