Jon Cooper On His Offense & Canes Goalie Justin Peters

After the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday evening Lightning coach Jon Cooper spoke about his teams offense, specifically firing off 50 shots, and gives credit to Carolina goalie Justin Peters.

“I got to tip my hat to that kid, I coached against him in the American League – he was a pain in the butt then and now he’s a pain in the butt in the NHL.”

Coach Cooper also applauded his teams offense for helping his defense out.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
