What has Tortarella done differently that warrants him getting any credit for these wins?

Sather completely changed his roster for him, and they still gave up 48 shots to the Hurricanes.

To me, it's an indictment of coaching ability where you need to trade players to get the entire team to put forth an effort.

Torts is not a good coach. He's not a bad coach either. He's just there, relying on the Vezina winner he has between the pipes. Changing lines 15 times a game is an admission to "I have no idea what I'm doing, but law of averages says at some point one player will score a goal"

He preaches unity, effort, and sacrafice. Not much else after that.
