This USB-C To Lightning Cable Gives Your Apple Device Superpowers

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that the USB-C standard is one of the biggest and best things to happen to consumer gadgets. The port is universal and is capable of doing quite a lot, including both power and data transfer. USB-C can power anything from a smartphone to a laptop, is capable of much higher data transfer speeds, and probably the most important feature yet… fast charging.Companies are eager to jump onto the USB-C bandwagon, with big players like Griffin, Belkin,...

Lightning Weekly Flash: Scoring, Milestones & Goaltending

With the second half of the season in full swing, the Tampa Bay Lightning are still the team to beat. Despite losing a couple of games recently, they continue to maintain a double-digit lead in both the Atlantic Division and overall NHL standings. They’re also in the midst of a nine-game point streak, though some fans were concerned about the team’s offensive output. A lack of goals contributed to the Lightning dropping two games in a row, something that happened only once before this season. T...

Lightning & Rangers Make Perfect Trade Partners

For the second straight season, the Tampa Bay Lightning will be buyers at the trade deadline, looking to stock up before making a push for the Stanley Cup. On the other side of the coin, for the second straight season, the New York Rangers will be looking to sell as they rebuild their franchise with new talent. So, even though they pulled off a blockbuster trade one year ago, the Lightning and Rangers could be in talks to make another major deadline deal in 2019. While Tampa Bay doesn’t necessar...

What If the Lightning Got Huberdeau?

As we inch closer to the NHL trade deadline, the rumor mill is in full fever pitch, with new names and trade targets getting thrown out there every day. No team is immune to this talk, even if you are at the top of the league like the Tampa Bay Lightning. Despite having one of the top rosters in the NHL, there will always be an interesting ‘what if’ conversation about how you could theoretically improve the Lightning at the 2019 Trade Deadline. Sure, they really don’t need to add anyone, but if ...

Lightning Dominate Stars – Stamkos & Kucherov Lead

TAMPA, Fla. — Steven Stamkos had two goals and an assist, Nikita Kucherov added a goal and three assists, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Dallas Stars 6-0 Thursday night. Tyler Johnson, Mikhail Sergachev and Alex Killorn also scored to help the Lightning improve to 6-0-2 in the last eight games and reach 90 points in 58 games this season. Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 32 shots for his fifth shutout of the season and 17th of his career to tie Ben Bishop for most in team history. Tampa Bay Ligh...

Lightning’s Deadline Deals in the Yzerman Era

During his time as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Steve Yzerman approached every trade deadline differently. Some seasons he was a seller, auctioning off veteran players in order to help build the future of the franchise. Other seasons he was a buyer, cashing in some of those assets he acquired at past deadlines in order to bring in key players for a playoff push. As the Tampa Bay Lightning’s general manager for close to a decade, Steve Yzerman steered the team through a number of ...

New iPhones To Stick With Lightning Over USB-C, Include Slow-Charging 5W USB-A Charger In Box (slashdot)

For those hoping the next iPhone would ditch the Lightning port in favor of the more versatile USB-C port, you'll surely be disappointed by the latest rumor. "Japanese site Macotakara says that not only will the 2019 iPhone use Lightning, Apple will also continue to bundle the same 5W charger and USB-A to Lightning cable in the box," reports 9to5Mac. "This is seen as a cost saving measure. It seems that customers wanting faster iPhone charge times will still have to buy accessories, like the 12W...

Goalie Announcements (Feb 12)

Monday night was a good night for most of the teams that were not in the top four in the standings, as there were quite a few points handed out among those 21 teams, give or take three of them.  Jeremy and Scott's teams were tops on the night with 6 points each, making some waves in the standings, even if they were just little ones.

Apple's new iPhones in 2019 reportedly won't include a type of charger that's become standard on Android phones

The iPhones that Apple is likely announcing in 2019 will supposedly come with the same old charging bricks that are considered slow by today's standards, according to the latest rumor.  Apple has missed two opportunities with its latest two generations of iPhones to include a fast-charging brick. It looks like Apple won't be switching over to the universal USB-C port for its 2019 iPhones, either, and it'll stick with its proprietary Lightning port and cables.  The iPhones that Apple will rele...

Week Nineteen Newsletter

Well, I'm not sure that everyone has sort of picked up on the idea of what the Waiver Draft is all about, since looking at the numbers, the bottom teams didn't get all that much better and the top team is now absolutely running away with everything.  It's almost embarrassing, really. The Bruins are continuing to roll right along in the Atlantic Division and that's thanks to their top line, [Author: Clayton Corley]

SUNRISE, Fla. — Nikita Kucherov had two goals and an assist to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning over the Florida Panthers 5-2 on Sunday night. Brayden Point, Ryan Callahan and Steven Stamkos also scored for the Lightning. Louis Domingue made 25 saves, and Anton Stralman had two assists. Denis Malgin and Frank Vatrano scored for the Panthers. James Reimer allowed three goals on 12 shots before being replaced by Roberto Luongo to start the third period. Luongo made nine stops.

Lightning Could Use Panarin, but Is It Worth It?

Heading into the 2019 Trade Deadline, it seemed likely that the Tampa Bay Lightning would be relatively quiet after having a busy 2018 Deadline. Julien BriseBois, the Lightning’s first-year general manager, inherited a team filled with both high-end talent and depth, so the idea of making a move to improve this already great roster felt unlikely. This hasn’t stopped the Lightning from getting connected to just about every available rental player this season, however. From Wayne Simmonds to Miche...

What the Oilers Need to Be Better Next Season

Edmonton Oilers fans have suffered through 11 out of the previous 12 seasons with their team out of the playoffs. The worst part about the now-done tenure of Peter Chiarelli is that he took over an Oilers roster with hope and scoring depth in need of some significant tweaking and left the team with very little flexibility, no scoring depth and still in need of major change. My summary of Chiarelli’s regime reviewed the dire roster outlook left by the previous general manager. We could spen...

Predators Acquire Brian Boyle for Pick

He may be a bottom six forward, but he has seemingly been one of the more valuable assets acquired over the past few seasons when it comes close to the NHL’s Trade Deadline. This time, veteran forward Brian Boyle is on the move again to the Nashville Predators. In exchange for the 34-year-old Boyle, the New Jersey Devils acquire a second-round pick in 2019, according to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston who also reported that there will be no salary retention by the Devils.

Predators Getting Boyle Makes Perfect Sense

On the afternoon of Feb. 6, the Nashville Predators announced they had acquired Brian Boyle from the New Jersey Devils for a 2019 second-round pick. In an effort to add center depth and toughness, Predators general manager David Poile acquired the 34-year-old veteran for a single asset, and didn’t give up a first-round pick or prospect in the process.

Ondrej Palat: The Lightning’s Forgotten Star

Sometimes you just have to admit when you were wrong. And I can say, with full authority, that I was wrong when I wrote an article titled ‘The Lightning Should Trade Ondrej Palat‘ in December. At the time my thought process was simple. When Palat went down with an injury in November, the Tampa Bay Lightning didn’t miss a beat, going 10-6 with their veteran forward off the ice. Considering his cost and injury prone nature, I felt that Palat had become replaceable in the Lightning’s lineup, with y...

Stamkos Back to Being Stamkos

With the All-Star break over and many teams buckling down for a playoff push, the Tampa Bay Lightning find themselves in an enviable position. Barring a major disaster, they’re almost guaranteed a postseason spot for the fifth time in the past six years. It’s no secret that depth has played a role, as has outstanding goaltending from the duo of Andrei Vasilevskiy and Louis Domingue. The biggest difference, however, has been the play of captain Steven Stamkos. Related: Stamkos Evolving Into...

Will Lightning Respond to Maple Leafs’ Muzzin Trade?

Heading into the 2019 NHL All-Star weekend, there were few people in the NHL happier than Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois. After Steve Yzerman stepped down from the role in the 2018 offseason, BriseBois inherited a stacked franchise that he helped assemble alongside Yzerman over the course of the last decade. By the All-Star break, the Lightning were in first place in the league, and their AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, were in a playoff position as well. If every...

Lightning’s Stampede Strikes Fear Into All Hearts

Sometimes, success in the world of hockey comes down to the basics. You can hire a young coach with brand new ideas, and you can look to trades or the draft to bring you hotshot players, but behind all the strategy and the layers of complication, winning games comes down to one simple idea: Score more than you concede. This season, in the Eastern Conference, we’ve seen Tampa Bay Lightning go forward with that philosophy better than anybody else in the country. A quick glance at the lat...
