Lightning question legality of Avalanche OT goal

TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper took one question during his postgame media session. Without getting into specifics about whether Colorado had too many men on the ice, I suggested the Avalanche’s overtime goal shouldn’t have counted.

“This one is going to sting much more than others,” Cooper said Wednesday night after a 3-2 loss in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. “It’s hard for me. It’s going to be hard for me to speak. I’m going to have to speak. I’ll speak with you tomorrow. You’re going to see what I mean when you see the winning goal. And my heart breaks for the players because we probably still should be playing. I’ll be available tomorrow.
