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. The rookie head coach exudes passion for the game, and his patience with the media (always a good thing, no?) was boundless. 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"]

Horton sprays fan / throws bottle post game 6


Things got messy after the final horn sounded at Times Palace last night (more on this later). It appears, however, there was a player/fan altercation immediately following last night's contest. Video appears to show Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton spraying and throwing a bottle at a Lightning fan in the stands while Horton himself was ducking down the tunnel to the visiting locker room. Before anyone asks if this excuses Lightning fans of throwing rally drums onto the ice / at players: No, just like Boston fans throwing stuff at the Lightning after game 1 was inexcusable. But the players are supposed to be better than this.
