John Tortorella was happy with the way his team played last night depsite their loss. "I thought we did some really good things," he said. "Our pressure was outstanding. Other than for a few minutes, we controlled the game. Other than that we played a hell of a game. We just can't score a goddamn goal, that's all. We just can't finish. We can't cut the line so fine here and be 1-0 again. We have to get that second goal so that type of situation doesn't hurt you. We're going to keep at it, keep banging at the team concept. I am looking forward to keep growing with the team because they've picked up on how we want to play."
