LIGHTNING GET NEW ARENA NAME: The Lightning's home arena will be known as the Tampa Bay Times Forum through August '18 as part of a naming-rights extension announced by the team and Times Publishing Co. yesterday. The St. Pete Times Forum will officially change its name to the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Jan. 1 to coincide with the newspaper's name change. The arena opened in '96 as the Ice Palace before selling the naming rights to the St. Petersburg Times in September '02 (Lightning).
