Video: Lightning Test Out New Tesla Coils

The Tampa Bay Lighting are in the process of starting their 2011-12 season with a 5 game road trip because of $40 million in renovations being done to the St. Pete Time’s Forum.  While there are a number different items being added or modified the one that everyone has been waiting to see is the Tesla coils.  The coils are set to shoot off lightning bolts each time the team scores a goal at home this season.  As if a team that went to the Eastern Conference Finals with a young superstar like Steven Stamkos or a superstar like Martin St. Louis, who only improves with age, needed more excitement to bring in fans, this will certainly create even more buzz.

Here is video, via @FelixPotvin, of them testing the coils out.

Wonder how many people want to go see the Lightning in Tampa just to see those live.
