Jon Cooper, keeping things light with his Lightning down 3-0 to Montreal.

Steven Stamkos, by the way, is expected to play in Game 4 tomorrow after taking a knee to the head Sunday.

“I feel pretty good so, yeah, I’m expecting to play,” Stamkos said today, per NHL.com.

    this guy is a good coach. hes a tenure coach, the kind of guy that a team will follow and listen to for a long time.

    hes done well with what hes been handed this year…really well. probably gonna end in a couple days but Tampa Bay can definitely come back next year with things to look forward to…

    The Bishop injury has really taken it’s toll on the Lightning.

      Yeah, I’d imagine almost any team would play worse than a team with one of the league’s best if they lost their starter. lol

    Love it. Glad to see some fun stories we can comment on instead of discussions that lead to which team is the most dirty and which fan base is the most classless.

    Tampa has an abundance of young scoring forwards and Ben Bishop appears to be a franchise goaltender. If this team can find some defense, whether it’s through the organization or via trade or free agency, they can make it deep into the playoffs and maybe all the way to the Cup Finals for years to come.

    Great coach. Won a AHL championship with the Norfolk admirals and I think only lost like 5-8 home games that year? Went to a few

    The ref should be fired from last game. Horrible. Horrible. Montreal gets all the calls. Always.
