Tortorella works on the principle of... let them have the puck and give them bad angle shots, block shots, and pray your all star goaltender can save your ass. When you're on offense, be sure to not burn yourself out because you have to back-check and start blocking more shots. Instead, dump it in and get ready to block more shots. We'll wait for a perfect fore-check and steal in their zone to generate 2-3 scoring opportunities a game.
