Abstract / Synopsis
The purpose of this article is to further the recent introduction of numberlines. Number lines, still, yes, are a pictorial abstraction of the real numbers; numberlines, however, are hockey line nicknames based on jersey numbers. A discussion of numberlines, the recent playoff woes of the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the binary expansions of the jersey numbers worn by “The Triplets” (who play for The Bolts) culminates with a new nickname more befitting such a transcendent trio.
