Ross Colton #79 of the Tampa Bay Lightning, right, celebrates his goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs with Alex Killorn #17 and Nicholas Paul #20 during the third period at the Amalie Arena on December 3, 2022 in Tampa, Florida.

The Tampa Bay Lightning begin their quest for another Stanley Cup Tuesday night when they play their first playoff game of the postseason in Toronto. The Maple Leafs are a familiar foe for the Bolts. And if this past week’s game is any indicator, this series is going to get wild.

Here’s the complete Round 1 schedule, including which TV channels here in the Tampa area will be televising the game. It’s a best of 7 series so the first team to 4 wins moves on. The other team’s golf season begins. It’s been a while since we’ve had a boat parade on the Hillsborough River so… Go Bolts!
