Jon Cooper Uses 'Wedding Crashers' Rules To Pump Up Lightning

Didn't you always wish your coach growing up used credos that you could relate to? Well, it seems Jon Cooper does that with the Tampa Bay Lightning, as two of the team's rules are borrowed from the code of Wedding Crashers.

"They have symbolism for us," Cooper said.

The two rules Cooper borrowed from the 2005 hit comedy film are:

Rule 76: No excuses, play like a champion.

Rule 113: Don't look for opportunities, make them.

That seems alright for hockey, but if I was a coach, I'd probably borrow more rules from that board, (not necessarily for hockey purposes, mind you.)
