During training camp, Tampa Bay Lightning coach Guy Boucher went to great lengths to remind players that this season wasn't about picking up where the team left off last season. No, he said, this season meant starting from scratch.
Well, after last night's loss to the Islanders, dropping the Lighting to 1-2-1 on the season, I'm thinking maybe Boucher might want to revisit his approach. Making the playoffs is hard enough. Having to pull yourself out of a hole only adds to that effort.
Then again, I'm just a hockey dad and a journalist. What the heck do I know?
