A little Lightning love from ESPN, of all places

Just about any day: Tampa Bay coach Guy Boucher Burnside: Whether he was going all bug-eyed at a referee's call or predicting the return of Boston's Patrice Bergeron to the Bruins' lineup (a moment that earned him the press box nickname of Dr. Boucher) or insisting that the Washington Capitals were absolutely unbeatable even as the Lightning were in the process of sweeping the East's best regular-season team, Guy Boucher was a treat.

More coaches like Boucher and you don't have to worry about selling this game, regardless of where the players lace up their skates. Oh yeah, he did a pretty good job behind the bench, too, taking the Lightning to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference finals. [-from "Our top moments from the 2011 playoffs"]
