Well, this is embarrassing

It seems that I'm the one in need of a little extra homework after making a trip to Tampa this morning in hopes of catching some Tampa Bay Lightning players as they made their ways to the St. Pete Times Forum.

Following published schedules, I incorrectly believed that arriving at least 90 minutes before the beginning of physicals and on-ice testing would put me in the right place at the right time. Well, let me tell you, I wasn't even close.

Instead, players reported at 9 a.m., a fact that had escaped me. My mistake. Hopefully, it won't happen again.

It's just another instance of everyone, and not just the players, needing to work on their game at this time of year. A lesson, I must admit, has been learned.
