Vinny had 2 goals, Ramo was solid. That's about all the positive I can take out of the game. The defense needs to stop collapsing back and letting guys skate freely in the zone. The blind passes that get picked off and turned into scoring chances need to stop. The intensity and sense of urgency needs to pick up.
Asked if his players were frustrated about their recent slide, Tortorella said, "I hope they're frustrated. I'm not so sure they are. I don't know what to tell you. There's a lot of things we need to get better at. We're a (terrible) hockey team right now.
"Everybody says 'Don't panic. Don't panic.' There had better be some panic going on within this club to get this turned around, or it's going to spiral to where you have no luck at all."
Tortorella did, however, applaud the performance of Ramo, who had several outstanding stops among his 29 saves.
"Don't talk to me about the net being off or this and that," Tortorella said. "It could have been 8-2."
