Best sights and sounds from Lightning’s Stanley Cup boat parade

Watch as Alex Killorn and Nikita Kucherov weave through boats on a jet ski during the Tampa Bay Lightning Stanley Cup parade.

Last season it was new, this summer it’s becoming a Tampa Bay tradition.

After capturing their second-straight Stanley Cup, the Tampa Bay Lightning, Bud Lights in hand, celebrated with a boat parade.

The Lightning did the same last season, hosting the parade as a way to involve their fans in the festivities amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after winning the Super Bowl this past winter, arranged for a similar celebration — made especially memorable by Tom Brady after a few tequilas.

From the Stanley Cup going for a jet ski ride, to the Lightning donning T-shirts inspired by Nikita Kucherov’s now-iconic, post-win press conference and more, here are the best sights and sounds from the second Lightning boat parade.
