Experienced Lightning unfazed after Game 1 loss to Islanders

The Tampa Bay Lightning trail in a Stanley Cup playoff series for the first time his spring. However, the defending champions are not in uncharted territory as they look ahead to Tuesday's home clash with the New York Islanders for Game 2 of their semifinal series.

En route to last year's crown, the Lightning twice dropped the series opener before winning a series, including the Cup final against the Dallas Stars. Therefore, they are not all that fazed after Sunday's 2-1 loss and well aware of the task at hand.

"They've shown the ability to dig their heels in," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "You'll get a hell of an effort from our guys."
