To the Tortorella confessor. The line brawl was the act of the Flames. When a fourth line gets put in to start a game, it’s the team asking for a fight right away. Torts chose to not put in his top line and get them screwed over (like the Flames wanted). He was justified in his decision, and it wasn’t his choice that a fight happened.

    That is complete bullshit. Torts is a good coach. He couldn’t just let his players get hurt with the line Calgary had...
