“We sucked.” Those were just two of a bunch of pointed words John Tortorella had for his hockey club following the Rangers’ loss to the Sabres on Tuesday night. The New York head coach went off on one of his patented postgame rants yet again, as the Blueshirts dropped a 3-1 decision to Buffalo. Tortorella unloaded on his team after the game, saying that he was “disgusted” with his team’s performance, while also noting that “we sucked when we couldn’t afford to suck.” Interestingly, Tortorella wasn’t in the mood to give the Sabres much of any credit for taking his team down. Those are comments that probably won’t be forgotten the next time these two teams meet. See video of the rant below.

AROUND THE WEB
The Rangers came up with one of their worst efforts of the season in their 3-1 loss to the Sabres on Tuesday. The only worse than that effort might have been coach John Tortorella's post-game press conference, which was more of the usual from him, though with even more vitriol for the media than usual.
Bottom six. Torts. Gaborik.
The only positive from the game was the...
Winnipeg Jets fans could be heard taunting New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella with a "Tortorella" chant during the third period of the Jets' 3-1 win over the Rangers Thursday night.
The win put the Jets in eighth place in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of the Rangers.

A month ago, Rangers fans were more than willing to see the struggling Derek Stepan sent to the Colorado Avalanche for Ryan O'Reilly.
While Stepan offered more offensively than O'Reilly, Rangers fans felt O'Reilly's superior face-off ability and toughness made him a much more viable option for the Blueshirts.
Since those rumors, Stepan has gone on an absolute...
In an article on the Rangers trying to bounce back from their tough loss in Buffalo, Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Dan Girardi is playing well below 100%.
Girardi smirked and said “I feel good” when questioned about his health yesterday.
In case you haven't noticed, Girardi has been given the "A" again with Staal out of the line-up.
Mike Ribiero? Interesting to say the least.
It’s long been rumored that the Rangers were talking to the Florida Panthers regarding Stephen Weiss, and Katie Strang confirmed that yesterday. Weiss is now out for the season, having undergone wrist surgery. While that path has closed, it appears that E.J. Hradek has mentioned that the Rangers are in on the Caps’ Mike Ribiero. There...
The New York Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist have had a rocky season so far but have shown glimpses of the powerhouse they could be. When playing the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night, Lundqvist made two insane back-to-back saves. Rangers defenseman Ryan Mcdonagh made a terrible play with the puck and it squirted across the crease right to Sabres forward Thomas Vanek, who has been...
Since being called up by the Rangers on March 5, Micheal Haley has been better than expected. His days with the Islanders showed he could fight anyone, but not much else.
With the Blueshirts, we've actually seen he can be an effective hockey player. He forechecks well, uses the body and skates decently (although he won't be confused with Ryan McDonagh anytime soon) to...
Perhaps the best save I have seen all year.
Lundqvist, even though out of position, finds the puck and is able to get his leg out to make a great save. The overhead camera at the end of the video is the best angle to see exactly what Lundqvist did.
The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...
The New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres hooked up for the second time in nine days with each team headed in opposite directions. The Rangers are winners of five of their last six games, including a 3-2 shootout win over the Sabres last Sunday at Madison Square Garden. The win snapped the Sabres three game winning streak [...]
