A prattled Pratt


"I don't want to get into a situation where I'm causing a distraction to the team," Pratt said. "But we were playing well, and I thought I was playing well. I feel like I can play and want to be part of things. It's not the same when you're not playing. That's what it comes down to, just wanting to play and participate and contribute."

It's sort of funny that Tortorella continiously plays the same lineup without changing who he scratches. There have been questions posed by others -- Damian at the Times being one of them -- about team depth. How much depth do you have when some of the players that are on your roster aren't in game shape?
