Photos from the Tampa Bay Lightnings series-clinching 2-0 win over the Florida Panthers

The Tampa Bay Lightning completed a shellacking of the team's in-state rival Florida Panthers on Monday night, capping off a 4-0 sweep of the best team in the National Hockey League. The Bolts advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the sixth time in eight seasons, where they'll face the winner of the series between the New York Rangers and Caroline Hurricanes. I guess checking out the Tampa strip club scene on the night before a game didn't work out for the kitties.
