The 2006–07 Tampa Bay Lightning season was the 14th National Hockey League season in Tampa Bay, Florida. The Lightning hoped to rebound from their disappointing first round exit in 2005–06. After head coach John Tortorella ripped his goaltenders during the 2006 playoffs,[1] the Lightning pinned their hopes on Marc Denis, acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets during the off-season.

Two Lightning players represented the Eastern Conference at the 55th National Hockey League All-Star Game in Dallas, Texas: Martin St. Louis scored a goal in the game, while Vincent Lecavalier recorded an assist.[2]
