Tortorella Takes Shot At Wolski; Status Uncertain

In the preseason, Wojtek Wolski was slated to be the top line left winger on a line with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik. After having a decent preseason, Wolski played in the first game of the regular season with the Rangers before missing the next four games with a groin injury. The Rangers eventually found a great replacement for him on the top line in Derek Stepan, which leaves...

Is Wojtek Wolski Closer To Returning For The Rangers?

“It felt good today,” said Wolski, “I had worked with the trainers and we agreed that I could ramp it up today and go full speed, and I feel good. I want to play in Edmonton. If I can skate tomorrow and go the full practice without any pain I’d like to play.” - Wojtek [...]

Tortorella, Avery Involved In He Said/He Said

The drama with Sean Avery and John Tortorella continues. Avery was candid in his comments to Katie Strang of ESPN when asked about his shot at making the Rangers and if the Rangers will ever recall him. On being recalled: Probably not. I doubt it. On him being given a fair shot: I’d say it’s pretty obvious. I’ll let everyone else decide for themselves. Tortorella, upon being...

Video: John Tortorella Postgame Interview

… love the first question by Sam Rosen. No Sam, Torts doesn’t want them to play every game like they did in the 3rd period.  It was a great game and Torts hits the nail on the head in all of his answers during the postgame interview. 

Lundqvist Starting, Bell In; Woywitka, Wolski, Sauer Out

Looking for their third straight win the New York Rangers are tinkering with their lineup inserting Brendan Bell on defense and scratching Jeff Woywitka.  Replacing Woywitka is not a big surprise as he struggled against Calgary, especially in the third period giving up multiple chances and taking a penalty with just 2:44 left in regulation. One change the Rangers are not making...

Wolski ignores Tortorella's dig

CALGARY -- Wojtek Wolski took the high road, which was pretty much the only sane way for him to go, by claiming yesterday morning he did not know he had essentially been called a malingerer by coach John Tortorella on Wednesday and he did not want to know what the...

Avery and Tortorella Fire Back-and-Forth

After being demoted to the Connecticut Whale of the AHL, forward Sean Avery recently spoke with ESPN and said this when asked if he thinks the Rangers will ever recall him: “Probably not. I doubt it.” And on whether he thinks he received a fair chance: “I’d say it’s pretty obvious. I’ll let everyone else decide for themselves.” Clearly Avery does...

Tortorella takes shot at wounded Wolski

CALGARY -- In just about one month, Wojtek Wolski has gone from getting the first opportunity to play left wing on the first line with Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik to becoming an unmistakable object of derision by coach John Tortorella. Wolski has missed the last three games with a...

Video: Rangers coach’s ‘we sucked from head to toe’ press conference

The New York Rangers lost to the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night, 2-0, as Oilers goalie Nikolai Khabibulin only faced 19 shots and the Rangers squandered a 5-on-3 power play in the second period.

Biron may net some ice time

EDMONTON, Alberta -- An interesting decision looms for Rangers coach John Tortorella regarding his starting goaltender for tonight’s game against the Oilers.Martin Biron has not played in a game in nearly three weeks, since the Oct. 3 exhibition match in Zug, Switzerland. He has not faced an NHL...

Pregame: Rangers Continue Canada Trip, Visit Calgary

One win is nothing to get excited about, especially when it took four games to get, but finally earning a tally in the "W" column was certainly a major relief for the New York Rangers on Tuesday. And not only was it a win, but it was a 4-0 shutout of the defending Western Conference Champion Vancouver Canucks. The Rangers, in any way possible, needed some sort of encouragement...

Avery grumpy, Torts doesn't care

Sean Avery skated Wednesday for the first time since his AHL assignment, and then did what he does best: started yapping. But when word of the winger's discontent reached John Tortorella in Vancouver, the Rangers coach wouldn't engage. "This is the first time I've heard about it," Tortorella said.
