The Philadelphia Flyers head coach John Tortorella opened up in a press conference after last night's brutal 9-3 loss against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Flyers have been free falling since the last few weeks. They've lost nine out of their last ten games, and dropped to the sixth rank in the Metropolitan Division, after a great season.
Last night, nothing worked for the Flyers on the ice. They made a lot of mistakes, which helped the Habs score a whopping nine goals.
Tortorella wasn't happy after the game and he opened up in his press conference. He even shared that he believes his team hit rock bottom last night:
"They need to answer the questions."

"I don't question their effort because it's been a strong group all year long. I'm frustrated for them because this was rock bottom tonight for us and I hate to see us at this time of year be playing this way after all the good minutes we've put in throughout the year."

"We made a lot of mistakes. Turnovers, coverages, any part of the game there were mistakes. You've got to eat it and we've got to stay together and try to solve things."

"Whether it's enough time to do what we want to do to try to get in, I'm not concerned about that. I'm concerned about just being pros trying to get some of our dignity back."

In just over two weeks, the odds of seeing the Flyers in the playoffs went from 88% to 4%: one of the most disappointing storylines of the season.
