Today Philadelphia Flyers head coach John Tortorella spoke to the media. During his remarks, he talked about Carter Hart's suspension and what they knew ahead of time. He also talked about their plans in the net for the rest of the year.

John Tortorella is known for being honest and open with the media sometimes to his detriment he tells the media what is going on. Today he spoke about the Carter Hart suspension and scandal. He even revealed when they found out and that they assumed a suspension was coming.
"Let's face it: things got thrown into a really weird situation when we lost Carter. But having said that, we had discussions in the summer about the situation w/Carter, & figured something was gonna go on, right? We've got to be honest about it."

As he continued during the press conference he addressed the goaltending situation in Philadelphia. During this part of the interview, John Tortorella stuck up for his goalie tandem of Samuel Ersson and Felix Sandstrom.
"I made the decision I'm gonna live or die w/Erss when I played him all those games. I did not have the confidence, & it's certainly not a criticism, it's just my assessment of Sandy -- I made the decision that we're going with Erss.

I've played the hell out of him. He's tired."

Once again the honesty and accountability from John Tortorella is refreshing. He revealed what the plan had been and why it ultimately failed. Now they move on to the next plan potentially relying on newly arrived Ivan Fedotov.
The Flyers find themselves one point out of a playoff spot with just 4 games remaining on the season.
