“It’s on the leaders. They have to understand we have to play a certain way. ... We’re playing the Washington Capitals. You can’t be out there 45 seconds and throw the puck blind in front. we’re trying plays that are not there. Zero-zero hockey game, there’s no excuse to do stupid things 22 minutes into a game. So, how should they take it? Honestly, I don’t care. We have enough guys playing the right way.”

-Lightning Coach Rick Tocchet on why he benched players during last night’s game against the Capitals.  More from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes.
