The Blue Jackets’ younger players are gaining some good experience right now, but that’s not the focus of Columbus head coach John Tortorella.
Monday night marks Game 6 of the Blue Jackets’ second-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Boston Bruins. The Bruins currently lead the best-of-seven series 3-2, meaning a loss for the Blue Jackets will spell the end of their season.
Because of that, Tortorella’s focus isn’t on the long-term development of his young guys, rather simply getting a win Monday night.
To hear from Tortorella, check out the “Bruins Face-Off Live” video above, presented by EchoStor Technologies.
