There’s Winning And Then There Is Winning The Right Way For The Tampa Bay Lightning

from Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times,

Coach Jon Cooper believed this eight-game road trip would be a telling, "show-us-what-we're-made-of" moment in the Lightning's season.

And the fact Tampa Bay has won five of the first seven, while missing Victor Hedman and Ondrej Palat for a good chunk of it, has to be encouraging.

But judging by the sound of Cooper laying into his team after Saturday's 4-2 win in Vancouver, Tampa Bay (36-13-3) still has a long way to go.

"I don't think we're playing our best hockey, I'll be honest," Cooper said.

"Not good enough," Hedman said.
