Cooper: Ousted Lightning victims of own success

Cooper: Ousted Lightning victims of own success

NHL JERSEYS
Here's the spin the Lightning had after Tuesday night's stunning 7-3 defeat in Game 4 of the first round: They were victims of their own success. The Lightning had 128 points in the regular season, with a points percentage of .780, the second-highest rate for an 82-game season in NHL history, behind only the 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings (.799).

NHL JERSEYS
The odds that Max Pacioretty bounces back to his expected range of 30 goals and 65 points just got a whole lot better.

NHL JERSEYS
Ever since John Ledecky and Scott Malkin inherited principal ownership of the New York Islanders two years ago, the goal was to carry a once-proud organization back to respectability. The process slowly hit landmarks. On the ice, the integration of 2015 first-round pick Mathew Barzal was a revelation.
