This has come with a lot of controversy, but one of the National Hockey League teams involved in the upcoming playoff tournament has decided to get back to business.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-opened their training facility five days after it closed due to multiple members of the organization testing positive for COVID-19.
The NHL announced Friday night that 11 players have tested positive for COVID-19 since Phase 2 of the league’s return-to-play plan started on June 8. The Lightning was also forced to temporarily shut down their training facility during Phase 2 because multiple players and some staff tested positive for COVID-19.
The state of Florida has been seeing record numbers of positive cases since it began re-opening parts of the economy earlier this month.
The Lightning wants to get back on track for its Stanley Cup quest and is hoping all will go to plan despite potentially rushing the steps with the reopening of their practice facility.
