John Tortorella saw the best and worst of his Blue Jackets team in the span of about 90 minutes.
They weren't sharp in the first period and fell behind 3-0 to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and things looked bleak after 20 minutes were down at Amalie Arena. But to their credit, the Blue Jackets collected themselves and began to slowly erode the Lightning lead. Nick Foligno got them going with a breakaway goal and away they went, before Seth Jones ripped in the game-winner on the power play.
After the game, Tortorella went into detail about his thought process while looking at a three-goal deficit, how his team stayed composed, and eventually picked up a huge win on the road to kick off the series.
