The Day After With Torts

“ I'm happy the way they (the players) handled themselves, and it doesn't surprise me how they handled themselves. They're probably going to have to do it again, probably have to do it again in this series. It was a lesson for us. ”
- John Tortorella
“ It's a win for us, but i just don't want us to get too carried away because this is part of it--this is what you have to do. It's a good lesson for us early, and there'll be a number of other times they'll have to go through this stuff. ”
- John Tortorella
“ I'm not sure Ryan Callahan said two words on the bench last night, it's what he does on the ice. He had a couple of huge blocks, scores a power play goal by being around the blue. That's who he is. And between periods in that locker room, his voice was heard. ”
- John Tortorella
“ Any time you win a game in the playoffs you just create momentum your own way. I don't think our team needs to be galvanized, it already is. We find a way to win a game last night and now have a little momentum on our side. ”
- John Tortorella
