Video- John Tortorella After A 5-3 Loss To The Vancouver Canucks

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

Asked if Foligno was snakebit, Tortorella said, “That’s great. Snakebit. We need a big play out of him. He had a couple of chances to score. We’re going to say, ‘Nick, his game is coming.’ But to me, he needs to make a big play.

“We’ve got to stop these moral victories and find a way to grind that out. We were not hard enough when we were up 3-2. We were not hard enough mentally and defensively, away from the puck, and that’s what cost us that game.”

And that is the Blue Jackets’ season to date, in 100 words or fewer.

The Jackets are 4-12-0. They are 4-5 under Tortorella, and they have begun to describe their identity — which, in a word, is “tenacious.” Yet there are some lingering problems, which, for some strange reason, are most pronounced at home.

Tortorella called out the team’s captain, but only because Tortorella was asked about Foligno’s fruitless shot. He could have cited any number of players for crimes and misdemeanors.
