LIGHTNING SET STANLEY CUP PLAYOFF ATTENDANCE RECORD

     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).
