Jon Cooper annoys Leafs with post Game 5 statement

Here he goes again...



Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Jon Cooper addressed the media after his team’s 4-2 win over Toronto in Game 5 of their first round series late on Thursday, and once again, he found the right words to get Maple Leafs and their fans going…

While Cooper explained how his players learned from their collapses against Toronto in Games 3 and 4, he added something that the Maple Leafs want nothing to do with : come back to Canada for an ultimate Game 7

“Let’s be honest. This game is so damn fun. You have two teams going at it. There are so many storylines. There are stars here.

Seriously, wouldn’t you guys have pissed off if this ended tonight? Let’s all be back here for Game 7.”

The Leafs, who have failed to advance in the post-season since 2004 and were eliminated by the Lightning in seven games last year. Toronto is now 0-10 since 2018 with a chance to eliminate an opponent.

Before Game 7 mentioned by Cooper who would love to return to Toronto for it, there will be a Game 6 on Saturday in Tampa where the Bolts need to stay alive.

We will see then if the Maple Leafs can improve that record or if Cooper was right about having some more fun in Toronto for Game 7.
