Lightning put past behind in advancing to Stanley Cup Final

Jon Cooper experienced difficulty in finding the right words.

Emotionally spent following a 2-1 overtime Eastern Conference final series-clinching win over the New York Islanders, the usually articulate Tampa Bay Lightning coach searched putting into perspective what it meant to be returning to the Stanley Cup Final with much of the team's core still intact from its previous trip in 2015.

Before he could look ahead to facing the Dallas Stars in Game 1 on Saturday, Cooper revisited the adversity the Lightning faced since losing to Chicago in six games five years ago.
