John Tortorella Quotes
You know what, 18 scoring chances to 10. We can't have expletive four goals go into our net on 10 chances. We can't. Especially the fourth goal. It can't happen. So you tell me you want me to get them to get out there and play aggressive, this that and the other thing, when expletive goals go in like that. They're going to be tentative. They're going to be tentative, and that has to stop for us to get any type of consistency here, or we're expletive done. It has to stop.
The thing about it that you have to hang your hat on as a coaching staff is I know they are working hard to get out of it. It's not like they're lazy. They are still creating chances but they are just not finishing. They will. They are too good of players for this to keep hanging around. If we can keep other parts of our game together while that starts coming, then maybe you start to get some consistency.
I don't think we were playing that well. They're a quick, loose, young team and we were having problems generating chances, problems with their speed. Then we started to do the little things and we won a hockey game. So as much of a grind as it was, we still found a way and that's what I liked about our team tonight.
