Tortorella on Retaliation

Kudos to New York's Jim Cerny for his preview of tonight's rematch between Original Sixes Toronto and our Blueshirts.  Here, John Tortorella discusses what he would like to see from his club in response to Colby Armstrong's boarding that separated Marian Gaborik's shoulder:

We’ve discussed the things that went on in that game. We’re trying to instill in our players ways to protect your teammates, but there are ways to do that without being an idiot. We’re striving to do that. We need to play hard and we need to play through people. All of the things that come into the game, like the Armstrong hit, we don’t focus on that, but we have talked about team toughness and handling situations when they arise.
