Tampa Bay's game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals against Colorado was hard to watch if you're a Tampa fan, or a fan of close hockey games.
The Avalanche's 7-0 domination of Tampa Bay to go up 2-0 in the best of 7 series was all the more surprising considering Tampa's goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy
is considered to be the best in the NHL.
When asked why he didn't pull Vasilevskiy and kept him in for all 60 minutes of play despite the game being out of reach Cooper had this response:
"He's the best goalie in the world. And we win together, we lose together. Even if I did, I don't think he would have come out. That's what a competitor he is. That's why he's the best."
It will be interesting to see how Vasilevskiy bounces back after his performance on Saturday, which was the worst of his career in terms of goals allowed.
