NHL Tampa Bay Lightning Playoff Watch Party Tickets
See the best stars in hockey with your Tampa Bay Lightning Playoff Watch Party tickets from TicketSmarter. The National Hockey League succeeded the National Hockey Association (NHA) in 1917. After disputes among the founding members of the NHA, the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Wanderers Ottawa Senators and Quebec Bulldogs voted to form the NHL. The winningest team from the NHL competed in the interleague competition for the Stanley Cup. The Toronto Arenas took home the 1918 Stanley Cup after defeating the Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. Since 1926, the competition for the Stanley Cup has officially been associated with only the NHL.
After the league expanded in the 1920s and 1930s, it drastically was reduced due to the effects of the Great Depression and World War II. By the 1942-43 season, the league was shortened to only six teams, known as the “Original Six.” For 25 years, these teams remained as the only members of the NHL. Teams like the Boston Bruins, Chicago Black Hawks and Detroit Red Wings competed during this stretch.
Tampa Bay Lightning Playoff Watch Party tickets are available for games that feature these original teams, as well as premier hockey events. The NHL Winter Classic is held annually in an outdoor stadium. Wrigley Field and Fenway Park are MLB stadiums that hosted the Winter Classic. It has also been held in NCAA Football stadiums like Notre Dame Stadium. NHL All-Star Game tickets are also available, as well as tickets to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The league rapidly expanded in 1967 and is made up of 32 teams as of the 2020-2021 season. Many of these teams have affiliations with AHL teams, such as the Providence Bruins and the Hershey Bears.
