You can spot the difference between a top-notch coach and their team by how they handle challenging situations. And this week, in two different organizations, two coaches had different reactions after their hockey teams lost for the third time in the playoffs.

Tampa Bay Lightning coach and two-time Stanley Cup Champion Jon Cooper was straightforward with his players after they lost game three to the Florida Panthers and fell behind 3-0 in their best-of-seven series.
If you don't believe, you don't have to come.

He wanted them to know that if they weren't willing to put in the hard work needed to win, they might as well sit game 4 out and pack it up.
Then Keefe said after the Leafs went down 3-1 in their series against the Boston Bruins,
You can question many things but can't question our effort
.
That didn't go over well with fans.
You are seeing the difference between a coach who knows how to coach winning hockey and a guy who respectfully has no clue. Meanwhile, Cooper's boys responded with a 6-3 win in Game 4 over the Cats to keep their season alive and helped their coach make playoff history in the process.
Cooper's got this winning culture going on, where he's been there before and knows what it takes. Keefe, on the other hand, seems to have lost control of the team. Fans feel it might be time for a change.
