Tootoo Ready To Take A Punch To The Head

from the Tennessean,

Tootoo said Friday he hopes the Blues focus more on him than they do on winning.
“I think it’s a positive for our team,’’ Tootoo said. “It takes a lot of their players off their games and they’re focusing more on me, which is great because I’m a fourth-line player and energy player.
“I can take a lot of heat and it makes me play that much harder. They can beak all they want to me, but to me it’s a positive, knowing I got them off their game.’‘
Tootoo said he looks forward to emotional contests.
“I know I’ll probably play a few extra minutes, hopefully creating some penalties,’’ he said. “I’ll definitely take a punch to the head for the team. We’ve got a very strong power play and I’ll sacrifice my body for whatever it takes….”
