Flashback to 2004, the last time the Bolts won the Stanley Cup

The Tampa Bay Lightning took home the Stanley Cup for the second time in their 28-year franchise history Monday night, topping the Dallas Stars, 2-0.

Thanks in part to a 2015 Stanley Cup Final run that fell just short, that 2004 championship feels like a lifetime ago to many Bolts fans. It may seem even longer when you realize that in 2004, there was no iPhone, Jon Gruden was coaching the Buccaneers, and Illinois still had a state senator named Barack Obama.

Here’s a look at a few more things you may or may not remember about June 7, 2004 – the last time the Lightning won the Stanley Cup Final.
