John Tortorella isn't interested in divulging the reason Sergei Bobrovsky was disciplined by his team.

The Columbus Blue Jackets head coach repeatedly stated "the (press) release will speak for itself" when asked to elaborate on the situation Thursday.

There's no sense in talking to them, either. This will be handled inside (the team). Jarmo and I will do the speaking on it if any more speaking needs to be done, but the release speaks for itself."
