Tortorella Accuses Bolts Of Shutting It Down

from the St. Petersburg Times,
Questions about the team's goaltending have resurfaced. Questions about the power play continued. And, most disturbing of all, coach John Tortorella accused his team of quitting when the going got tough. "The thing that bothers me the most is I just thought we shut it down," Tortorella said. "Was our goaltending good? No, it wasn't good. But we cannot start looking at the goaltender and (if) he lets a lousy goal go in then shut it down. If we're not getting the saves, we better win the game 6-5 or whatever it has to be. But to shut it down, that's the wrong way to go here. And that's what disturbs me the most."
