News From The Future: Tesla Coils At Sporting Events, thanks Jon!

After a two-game delay for fine tuning, the Tampa Bay Lightning debuted the very awesome Tesla coils tonight inside St. Pete Times Forum before their 3-0 shutout of the Buffalo Sabres. During the pre-game festivities, the lightning glory of the Tampa Tesla coils were put on display… They were only used pre-game as, according to the team, there’s still just a bit more tweaking that needs to be done and once that’s complete, they’ll shoot lightning after every Tampa goal. Considering the Lightning tied with Calgary for an NHL-best 134 goals at home last season, the Tesla coils will need to be prepared for excessive use.
