The Lightning has again redecorated the hallways inside its locker room and leading outside the locker room door to the ice.

The hallway inside the locker room is decorated with images from the team's past as reminders of the tradition that has come before. The hallway leading from the locker room to the ice is decorated with images of players from the team's current roster.

"The plan in our head was tohave the history of our team and the present of our team as we walked out onto the ice," coach Jon Cooper said. "Guys could get a feel what's gone on here, who's walked in these hallways before us and who is walking the hallway now. That was well thought out with the group."

Cooper said that every picture that went into the murals, where they were situated, was approved by the coaching and management staff. Cooper called it "trendy" and "modern."

"What I had in my mind I thought was going to be great, they made it way cooler," Cooper said.

"I think that puts a little onus on you," Cooper added. "This was done here in the past. This is becoming an expectation for us. This is what we want to do. We want to go in and expect to win games and anything you can do to help create that environment it helps."
