TAMPA (FOX 13) - Tampa Bay will face a familiar foe in the Eastern Conference First Round Series when they start their quest for the cup against the Detroit Red Wings.
The two teams met a year ago in the first round, when Tampa Bay rallied back to beat Detroit in seven games. This year the Wings and Lightning have split their four regular season meetings 2-2, each team winning at home.
The Lightning will have home ice advantage when their series with the Red Wings begins Wednesday. The NHL will release the full Stanley Cup Playoff picture later today.
