The New York Rangers are doing what they can to support the fan who was assaulted at Geno's Steaks. According to David Li of the New York Post, Neal Auricchio Jr. will be the guest of John Tortorella at an upcoming game.
Neal Auricchio Jr., 30, the Iraq war hero assaulted by Flyers fans following the Winter Classic, will be the guest of Coach John Tortorella at New York’s Feb. 27 game against the Devils.
Tortorella phoned Auricchio Monday.
“It absolutely lifted his spirits,” wife Maria Auricchio told The Post. “He’s, and we’re all, such big Rangers fans. It was great [to get Tortorella’s call].”
There have been no arrests yet in this case.

When you're leading the National Hockey League with a 26-9-4 record on the season and have won your past four games, it is easy to lose focus and forget what's gotten you there. Head coach John Tortorella is making sure that won't be the case with his New York Rangers as he is making every attempt he can to make sure this team remains on task and maintains its focus despite...
What more can I say about John Tortorella that I haven’t already said? I’ve covered his forechecking system, how players earn icetime within his team concept, and I gave you all insights into his line tinkering strategy when many wanted to brand him a fool.
At this point I don’t want to beat a dead horse. I will say this; back in late October/early November we put up poll...
The first place New York Rangers may be on a four-game winning streak and leading the entire NHL with a 26-9-4 record, but head coach John Tortorella has not made it a secret that he hasn't been satisfied with the club's play in their last two games.

I respect John Tortorella. Been a fan of his before he joined our team, and an even bigger fan of his now that he is the coach of our team. But I respectfully disagree with not only the way he coached this game, but in his post game comments. He thought the third line was his best line, yet they were on for all 3 goals against. He said AA is missing “everything” from his...
… I am glad he praised the third and fourth lines as they were huge this game, especially John Mitchell. Mitchell has heard a lot of hate towards him from a decent size portion of the fan base who believe Avery would be a better fit on the third line then him. Mitchell played HUGE [...]

Here’s the audio from John Tortorella’s press conference, and a group interview with Dan Girardi (pretty funny) about being named to the all-star team. Tortorella also said that Brandon Dubinsky (shoulder) will not play, and that Wojtek Wolski will go into the lineup in his place.
Erik Christensen consented immediately to a maximum two-week AHL conditioning stint when John Tortorella suggested it Tuesday morning.
Hard to believe just about half a season has gone by.
Ya boys return from their little hiatus on a four-game winning streak, with wins in nine of the last 10 and still in first place in the Patrick Division, in the Eastern Conference and in the whole National freakin’ Hockey League.
Same lineup. That means Erik Christensen, Wojtek Wolski and Jeff Woywitka are all...
