The Lightning will again play each of their Metropolitan Division opponents within the Eastern Conference three times. Tampa Bay will host the Washington Capitals, New Jersey Devils, Carolina Hurricanes and Columbus Blue Jacks twice, while playing host to the Penguins, New York Rangers, New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers once each, along with each Western Conference team.
The Lightning will play nine home games during the month of March, more than any other month.

The Bolts will host their longest home stand of the season with five games from December 28 through January 5. They will also play four strings of four home contests in a row.
