Bolts: Jon Cooper The Mindset Going Into OT

Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Jon Cooper spoke with Sports Talk Florida Lightning Insider about what he said to his team going into O.T. versus the defending Stanley Cup Champs Chicago Blackhawks. The Lightning won 6-5 Thursday night.

On the overall game…
“I don’t think we stole tonight, statistically you might look at shots on goal but I don’t think it was a terrible game. I thought we hung in there and every time they pushed, we pushed back.”

“I thought we played our best hockey of the night when we were down 4-3. Hedman made a great play; our power-play comes up big to get the goal ahead; that was character.”

On the own goal…
“The guys they didn’t care, they just said let’s just go win this overtime.”
