Lightning coach Jon Cooper doesn't expect Ryan Malone's off-ice issues to be a distraction for the team.
"I don't know that will cause any sort of a distraction," Cooper said. "Hockey wise, we've had way more distractions worse than this one. This is more of a life issue with a friend of ours. Physically we know that he's doing OK and hopefully the worst is over and this is moving onward and upward. But as for the hockey, this won't be a distraction at all." Cooper added that the team is focused on Malone's personal well-being and his health after he was charged with DUI and possession of cocaine Saturday morning. Apr 14 - 11:47 AM
