LIGHTNING STRIKES: Lightning Exec VP/Communications Bill Wickett said that “about 100 Lightning season-ticket accounts have been canceled” due to the NHL lockout. In Tampa, Damian Cristodero reports the team “gives fans three ways to manage their season tickets during the lockout.” A ticket holder making no changes gets 10% interest "toward food, beverages and merchandise.” Fans also can receive 5% interest "paid in monthly installments following any missed games to be applied to the playoffs, if there are any, or the 2013-14 season.” The third option is what one fan called "financial divorce” (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 12/19).
