Video- John Tortorella After A 2-1 Shootout Loss To The Florida Panthers

from Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch,

Tortorella didn’t think the Blue Jackets were stoked enough to play the Panthers, like they would be to play, say, the Pittsburgh Penguins or, tonight’s opponent, the Philadelphia Flyers.

“I don’t understand how we can disrespect an opponent when we’re looking up at all 29 teams,” Tortorella said. “It’s another lesson that we’re going to have to learn as we keep plugging away here, trying to get ourselves well.

“But this one … I didn’t expect this one. I thought we were beginning to find our way. But as a group, right on through the lineup, it was disrespectful to our opponent.”
