The Lightning take the ice tonight in Toronto for game five against the Maple Leafs. The Bolts are down 1-3 in the series and must win this game to stay afloat in the postseason. Ready to root them to victory?

Here’s a few ways to take in the action, barring flying to Toronto:

  • Head to the St. Pete Pier for the official Lightning Game 5 watch party. The fun starts at 6 p.m., and the puck drops at 7 p.m.
  • A number of our local bars are sure to be streaming the game. We recommend checking out American Social in Tampa or Parks & Rec DTSP to enjoy the electric atmosphere while downing some apps and brews.
  • Host a watch party at home with Cuban sandwiches, festive cookies, and other local treats.

Hoping to catch game six (if the team makes it there) from the Thunder Dome itself? There’s tickets available, starting at $93.
