Lightning

NHL

Jon Cooper and the Lightning face the Blackhawks tonight in Chicago. I asked Cooper how he has evolved as a coach since entering the league. He is the league's second-longest tenured coach, behind Joel Quenneville. "You have to keep reinventing yourself, you can't keep going to the same well every time, because that act will get old with the guys. I coach the same guys. If you take the Tyler Johnsons and the [Ondrej] Palats, I've had them for seven years.... The second you start resting on your laurels and think you conquered it? I'll be standing where you are right now."
