Do not anger Guy Boucher

Tampa Bay Lightning v Boston Bruins - Game Seven

BOSTON, MA - MAY 27: Head coach Guy Boucher of the Tampa Bay Lightning speaks to the media after their 0 to 1 loss to the Boston Bruins in Game Seven of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at TD Garden on May 27, 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Does Guy Boucher look like the kind of guy that you’d want to make angry? He looks like a James Bond villain—only with crazier eyes. Unfortunately for the 20 players in the Tampa Bay locker room, Tuesday night’s effort against the Carolina Hurricanes is the type of effort that did not please their leader. After the game, Boucher insisted that “if we don’t fight and battle, we’re going to lose against every team in this league.”

Not good for a team that neither fought, nor battled for the majority of their 4-2 defeat.

Check out Boucher’s interview with the Tampa Tribune (video link) after the game. You won’t be sorry.
