The Coaches Room is a regular feature throughout the 2019-20 season by one of four former NHL coaches and assistants who will turn their critical gaze to the game and explain it through the lens of a teacher. Paul MacLean, Rob Zettler, Rob Cookson and Randy Carlyle will take turns providing insight.
In this edition, Paul MacLean, former coach of the Ottawa Senators, checks in from Stockholm, where he is conducting coaching clinics in conjunction with the 2019 NHL Global Series, where the Tampa Bay Lighting will play the Buffalo Sabres at Ericsson Globe on Friday (2 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN1, NHL.TV) and Saturday (1 p.m. ET; NHLN, SN1, SUN, MSG-B, NHL.TV).
MacLean examines how the trip could have long-term positive impacts for each team.
