Im quite sure Tortorella wouldnt give a **** if Lundqvist was giving up 5 goals a game if they were winning every game 6-5. The issue that the defense was a downright disaster and the offense came back down to earth and started scoring 2 goals a game every night again. The change in philosophy has little, if anything, to do with Lundqvist.

That's absurd. This not the mid 80's with the Edmonton Oilers or Calgary Flames.


Believe what you want. But Torts was expecting and relying on Lundqvist to be his stonewall between the pipes. He stated exactly that several times during the summer and in Training Camp. He based his offensive attck strategy on it.

It didn't take him long to see that wasn't the case.
