The Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the NHL's worst teams last season, has new ownership that believes it can achieve the type of quick turnaround that the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers pulled off. So to head up this endeavor, word is that the Lightning will name ESPN hockey analyst Barry Melrose as the coach today. The last and only time that Melrose coached in the NHL was from 1992 to 1995 (2 1/2 seasons), and the Kings did go to the Stanley Cup Finals once, losing to the Montreal Canadiens.

TAMPA, Fla. - Who's laughing now? The Tampa Bay Lightning, the laughingstock of the NHL up until three years ago, a team four years removed from back-to-back 19-win seasons, a team the Florida Panthers used to torment for kicks, will have its name engraved on the Stanley Cup. With a nail-biting 2-1 victory last night over the Calgary Flames in Game 7, the Lightning, the Eastern Conference's best team throughout the regular season, became the first 1990s...
