New Lightning head coach Jon Cooper watched Tuesday's victory from the press box next to a big fan, GM Steve Yzerman.
Both gentlemen spoke about the hire Tuesday.
Yzerman told WDAE's Steve Duemig "to be honest, I didn't consider anyone else" for the job despite reports that former Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was a strong candidate.

Cooper was full of energy Tuesday and doesn't want to hear that the Lightning are out of the playoff hunt.
"To hear the playoffs are history.. I don't know. Until the final buzzer goes in the last game of the season, I'm coming here to make the playoffs," Cooper said.
Cooper will make his debut Friday at home against New Jersey.
