Fox's Sun Sports to debut Inside the Lightning: The Captain and the Cup
TAMPA, Fla. (April 8, 2014) – On Thursday, April 10, at 10:30 p.m., Sun Sports, the regional television home of the Tampa Bay Lightning, will premiere the next episode of "Inside the Lightning" upon conclusion of the Lightning vs. Philadelphia Flyers game. Titled "The Captain and The Cup," this special episode will focus on former Bolts captain Dave Andreychuk, who skated in 278 games with the Lightning over the final four seasons of his NHL career, and captained the franchise to its first Stanley Cup Championship during the 2003-2004 season.
A Hamilton, Ontario native, Andreychuk signed with the Lightning in 2001 and provided instant veteran leadership to his teammates. Hosted by Kelly Nash, the show will feature an on-ice chat with Andreychuk as he reminisces about being in the penalty box for the final moments of the Stanley Cup – watching his team and family in the stands. With victory secured, he would be the first to touch the Stanley Cup and hoist it above his head in celebration. That moment in history is now forever celebrated with a statue that was placed in the Ford Thunder Alley outside the Tampa Bay Times Forum on April 5, 2014.
This episode features sound from:
- Lightning Vice President of Corporate & Community Affairs Dave Andreychuk
- Former Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster
- 2004 Assistant Captain Freddy Modin
- Former teammate Tim Taylor
- Former Assistant Coach Craig Ramsay
- Andreychuk's first Head Coach Scotty Bowman
