Tuesdays with Dani: Changing up routines

Sometimes players will hold players only meetings, nothing happens and the media glances over the occurrence of the meeting. Sometimes players hold player only meetings and the team turns around a losing slide, then people go back and say, 'it was because of the player only meeting' that sparked the change.

Before going into Sunday's game Boucher insisted the players have breakfast in the morning since some players just grab coffee and go. Then he had his pre-game meeting at the hotel instead of at the rink curbing the late naps that cause "coma mode". The Lightning had a comeback win over the Panthers who they've struggled against this season. Was it the routine change that made the difference? Maybe breakfast is the new players only meeting.
