Are you wondering why I haven’t written a hockey post in a while, or were you just enjoying the blissful silence and the hockey-free conversation? It’s quite simple: I knew a long time ago my Lightning were not going to set foot in the play-offs this season. They are notoriously inconsistent, but this season was even more whiplash-inducing up and down, back and forth action than usual. One game they were on fire, the next half dozen or so, it was like their first time on skates.
Almost six months until the 2017-18 hockey season starts! Enjoy the hockey-less posts until then. But be forewarned…the first Pittsburgh Steelers pre-season game is in August.
