The Tampa Bay Lightning are on the verge of their third consecutive Stanley Cup Finals appearance. They still need to come back in their series against the New York Rangers, but they, fortunately, have the depth and skill to get the job done.

It's very possible the Lightning win their third Stanley Cup in a row. With that in mind, let's take a look at Tampa Bay's Finals history to this point

Have the Lightning Ever Won a Championship?

Yes, the Lightning have certainly captured the Stanley Cup before. The franchise has won three titles overall since entering the NHL in 1992.

When Was the Last Time the Lightning Won a Championship?

The Lightning's most recent championship run just came during the 2020-21 NHL season. They defeated the Montreal Canadiens in five games while goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy took home Conn Smythe honors by going 16-7 with a 1.90 goals-against average and .937 save percentage.

The Lightning have now won the Stanley Cup in back-to-back years and would become the first team to win three consecutive since the New York Islanders won straight from 1980 to 1983.
