Lightning apologize to their fans for playoff disappointment
What do you say to your fans after you let them down with one of the biggest postseason disappointments in history? That’s what the Tampa Bay Lightning are trying to figure out.
The Lightning became the first President’s Trophy winner to be swept in the first round of the playoffs, as they fell 7-3 in Game 4 of their first round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets Tuesday night. Tampa Bay tied an NHL record with 62 wins in the regular season, which had their fans thinking big.
Unfortunately, the season came to a shocking end, and a stunned franchise was left apologizing to its fans on Twitter.
We don’t have any words and we know you don’t want to hear them.
We understand your anger, your frustration, your sadness. Everything you’re feeling – we get it.
This isn’t the ending we imagined, and certainly not the one we wanted. Thank you for being there the entire way.

Their fans and players have to be shell-shocked by what transpired. They probably can’t even give a response to the Blue Jackets trolling them. All they can do is regroup and try to pull a Virginia next year.
