Shocking: Lightning coach isn’t happy about disallowed goal

57 Comments

Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Jon Cooper gave the impression that he wanted to avoid being fined when asked about a controversial disallowed goal from a 3-2 Game 3 loss to the Montreal Canadiens … yet some sarcasm and bitterness couldn’t help but spill out.

His comments covered a range of moods:

Angry

Diplomatic

Snarky

Who knows?

Laudatory

Does Cooper have reason to be mad? Here’s the clip in question:

Naturally, Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien was fine with the call.

One thing that’s not subjective is that Montreal has Tampa Bay on the brink of elimination after Sunday’s 3-2 decision, even if Cooper & Co. probably feel slighted.
