Lightning Coach Jon Cooper Wanted More Tenacity Saturday Night

Echoing the comments of his captain Martin St. Louis Tampa Bay Lightning Coach Jon Cooper felt the grit and tenacity was missing in the Lightnings 5-0 drubbing at the hands of the Boston Bruins.

Coach Cooper made it clear that he was disappointed in tonight but not in the team. “They’ve done everything we’ve asked in training camp, they’ve done everything they’ve asked so far in playing, tonight….I’m confident to say tonight was an aberration.”

About the team failing to capitalize on the power play:

After a hot start last year the team buckled after some tough losses? How to prevent that this year? 

On Hockey Karma:

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.
