And perhaps most importantly they have Tortorella and his staff. There isn't that much to choose between lineups in a lot of cities these days, but the coaching in Tampa was top notch and made the difference for them in their two close series. They instilled the mental discipline and resiliency that the Lightning consistently showed, and they unveiled new pages from a surprisingly adaptable and versatile gameplan at every critical moment.
