LIGHTNING SET STANLEY CUP PLAYOFF ATTENDANCE RECORD
Published April 22, 1996
The Lightning set an NHL playoff attendance record yesterday with 25,945 fans at ThunderDome to watch the win over the Flyers in Game 3 of their 1st Round series. The previous playoff record of 22,738 was set last year by the Blackhawks. Yesterday's attendance was the 7th highest in NHL history. The six previous attendance highs were all established in the regular season by the Lightning (NHL). The TAMPA TRIBUNE notes Lightning officials still have not determined where to "draw the line" on selling tickets. ThunderDome could "probably" hold 35,000, but anything over 28,000 would have an obstructed view (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 4/21).
