John Tortorella, one of the best.
After defeating the New Jersey Devils on Sunday, the Columbus Blue Jackets collected two points to reach the century-point club for the first time in franchise history. It was the third time for coach John Tortorella.
Tortorella is now just one of eight coaches to total a 100-point season with three different clubs. The surly bench boss previously did so in 2011-12 with the New York Rangers (109 points) and in 2003-04 with Tampa Bay (106 points), a year in which the Lightning went on to win the Stanley Cup.

|Pat Quinn||PHI - VAN - TOR||5|

|Darryl Sutter||CHI - CGY - LAK||4|
|Peter Laviolette||CAR - PHI - NSH||4|
|John Tortorella||TBL - NYR - CBJ||3|
It marks another accomplishment in a season in which the veteran coach has rebranded himself. Just don't tell Tortorella.
