The Tampa Bay Lightning originally planned to open the home portion of their exhibition season with games Wednesday against Carolina and Thursday against Nashville at Amalie Arena. Hurricane Ian had other ideas, however.
Due to the approaching storm, the Lightning announced both games are postponed, with no makeup date announced.
Likewise, the Tampa Bay Rowdies postponed their Wednesday game against El Paso Locomotive FC at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg. They rescheduled it for Oct. 12.
The good news – all tickets already purchased for the match between Tampa Bay and El Paso will be honored on the new matchup date.
