The closing time the Tampa Bay Lightning lifted Lord Stanley’s Cup, the 12 months was 2004, and smartphones, to not point out social media, had been positively not an element.
But in 2020, it’s all about social media and Monday evening time, mere seconds after the final word buzzer sounded to wrap up the 2019-20 NHL season with a topped champion, the sports world took to Twitter to congratulate the most recent Stanley Cup winners.
From soccer to soccer, baseball to rugby, and former Lightning avid gamers, too, all people was pumped that the Stanley Cup was heading once more to Florida.
Congrats to @TBLightning and @CityofTampa for being the @StanleyCup champ. Again! It is the hardest trophy to win. To the avid gamers, workers & all involved- giant congrats! Especially Mr.Vinik for the immeasurable affect he’s had on the crew and metropolis! Glad to see the Cup is once more home

Congrats @TBLightning !!! What an accomplishment from such an vital/satisfying crew to have a look at 12 months in and 12 months out. Good for these group of males out on that ice for being champs!!!
