Lightning coach Cooper: 'Genuine pissed-off attitude that we lost Game 5'
"There was a genuine pissed-off attitude that we lost Game 5," said the coach. "I could just tell. Nothing needed to be said."
Tampa Bay lost the contest after a late P.A. Parenteau goal gave Montreal a 2-1 advantage, which sealed the deal for the Habs. The Lightning didn't deal so well with the loss.
"Guys were angry and it's carried over, so I like our mojo," said Cooper. "I want to be an angry team."
The Lightning have a chance to take out their frustrations and end the Canadiens season Tuesday when they host their opponents at Amalie Arena.
