“I’m familiar with their team as a whole and some of their star players. I’ve played against coach [Jon] Cooper since I was in juniors, so I’m familiar with how he runs his ship,” Coleman said. “I’ve always been a team-first player and team-first guy. Whatever spot they put me in, I’ll be willing and excited to help the team whatever way I can. I think I have a playoff-type game and a will to compete and a will to win. Obviously, they already have a lot of the pieces you need to win a championship, but any little extra I can bring, I’m happy to do it.”

The Lightning are looking to avenge last years embarrassing playoff sweep at the hands of the Blue Jackets. The Lightning are ALL IN.
