The Bolts is the nickname for the Tampa Bay Lightning of the NHL as well. Their third jerseys say 'Bolts' as well. If you could add them as an acceptable answer that'd be great :)

I agree; I tried the Lightning as well. I've heard them both called the Bolts. I also see both Dolphins and Marlins are acceptable for "Fish," but I don't think the Dolphins are called the Fish; they're called the 'Phins (or maybe Fins?). Dolphins aren't actually fish anyway.

This, I actually tried spelling lightning different ways because I assumed it was a typo, anyone who follows the NHL would think the Tampa Bay Lighning for Bolts

I'll allow Lightning now too. Thanks!

I always like the name "Broad street bullies" for the flyers. Although I guess that was more for a specific team from a specific year. Not many people would call the flyers by that name now.

Ah yes, I remember the '76 Stanley Cup Finals well. The Flying Frenchmen skated circles around those Broad Street Bullies in a 4-game sweep. Sweet!!!

Admittedly, I'm not from Texas or New York, but I've never heard the Rangers called the Blueshirts. Interesting.
