It’s not just the Montreal Canadiens looking to postpone the Tampa Bay Lightning’s chances of lifting the Lord Stanley Cup for the second year in a row.
This year’s Stanley Cup final series will return to Tampa for Game 5 on Wednesday. However, with Tropical Storm Elsa gaining momentum and set to hit the Florida city later Tuesday, there is certainly a chance that the puck drop for that game could be delayed.
“In regards to the game and watch parties, the Lightning and NHL continue to monitor the situation and will make the necessary announcements at the appropriate time,” team officials said in a statement obtained by News 10 WTSP Tampa, as the Bolts fly home from Montreal.
Elsa is expected to bring “winds over 65 mph, 2-4 inches of rain and 2-4 feet of storm surge.”
The National Weather Service has already issued a warning to residents of the area.
