Tomorrow will be interesting. One regulation win in Esquire's first five games wouldn't exactly match the rhetoric.

We've looked better in some ways but continued to make familiar mistakes as well.

The compete level has been there (unlike with Boucher). But the individual mistakes are eating us alive, Coop can't fix that overnight.

Purcell seemed to take a nap after having one of his better games last outing.

Yeah, I know - not trying to pick on the new guy. Just completely infuriated at the likelihood of another lost season.

Matt Carle was named the game's third star.

For which team?

Too much of the old TB in this game. It's like a switch gets turned on. They looked dangerous for a few sequences in each period, but just too many dumb passes and turnovers.

Fundamental motor skills were at a loss for the Lightning tonight. Too many times falling over. Too many times passing the puck to an opponent standing just five feet away.

With Winnipeg and Washington both winning tonight, the margin for error from here on out is next to nothing. If either the Caps or Jets go on a streak, it's over.

This. It'll take time for Cooper to get his system going, and I'm still not expecting playoffs this year.

I guess you could say that if they got there, they would be so hot that they could win a round or two, but honestly, they are better off adding another high draft choice to the mix.
