Headline Sports podcast with Matt Harrington: Lightning’s Stamkos should be ready when NHL is; Neutral site hockey would see three games a night

The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steven Stamkos should be ready after recovery from March 2 surgery when the NHL returns (nhl.com)

On Headline Sports with Matt:

#1 Gary Bettman and the NHL are discussing ways to open up the season in a neutral site location playing three games at least a night calling it a trial balloon. Also sources say that games could be played locally but with no fans.

#2 The neutral site idea is getting some traction because there would be no travel involved and getting on planes.

#3 The players however will have to sacrafice being away from their familes for extended amounts of times.

#4 There will be no fans watching these games in the building it will feel like a pick up game arena atmosphere every night.

#5 The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steven Stamkos will be back once the NHL season gets going. Stamkos is coming off core muscle surgery March 2 and he was expected back at that point in six to eight weeks.
