9-6-1. Previous: 6th. Tampa Bay Lightning. 8. team. 23. The Lightning should be the frontrunner to go to the Stanley Cup out of the East. They somehow signed Nikita Kucherov, got Steven Stamkos back healthy and retained most of their depth. Steve Yzerman has turned a team full of problems into a group itching to return to the Stanley Cup. John Cooper and company are hoping they can head to the playoffs without having to answer any Stamkos health questions.
