    Those 2018-19 Lightning, who were the league favorite to win the Stanley Cup, ended up making history for all the wrong reasons. It was the kind of series that made some fans (who, me?) shelve their Bolts gear deep in their closet until they were ready to see it all again, which would take a while. It was the kind of upset that was so historically bad, even my friends who are Blue Jackets fans felt the need to apologize.
