John Tortorella Postgame Interview After Huge Win Against Bruins

… it’s amazing when the top guys step up and take over the game. Richards looked a bit better through the first 2 periods but did not look good at all in the 3rd, not sure what is going on with him.  Gaborik was amazing, as was Lundqvist. Another player that played VERY good was [...]

Pregame: First Place Rangers Host Streaking Penguins

John Tortorella couldn't have been happier with what he saw from his team in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Nashville Predators at Madison Square Garden.

Coaches Claude Julien and John Tortorella both have their teams humming along this season, and their All-Star coaching spots reflect that.

Torts won’t reign on Dolan’s parade

Richards ticked at Cooke’s cheap shot; Tortorella on Boston

Was busy at post-practice today, working on Ryan Callahan story for the weekend. But did have time to get Brad Richards’ angry reaction to that pile of carcillo Matt Cooke’s slew foot, and John Tortorella talking about Boston tomorrow. Richards missed practice with a neck that “locked up” after the game, but said he had no symptoms of a concussion (he missed 10 games...

Making A Case For Extended Video Replay On Disallowed Goals

NHL officials have always taken their fair share of grief. But lately, ever since some questionable calls in the Winter Classic drew the ire of Rangers head coach John Tortorella, controversy has reigned supreme in the NHL, especially when it comes to disallowed goals.

Rangers-Bruins in review

Hockey Gods. John Tortorella referenced the Hockey Gods the one night this week, when Marian Gaborik was incorrectly called for a double-minor penalty when one opponent’s stick. and not Gaborik’s, hit the face of another opponent.

Rangers slumping into All-Star break

Are the wheels starting to fall off of the car that is the New York Rangers?Though the Rangers are not in dire straits, they are limping into the All-Star break. In their last five games they’ve gone 2-3 with losses in three poor outings against the Ottawa Senators, Montreal Canadiens and, most recently, the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It says a lot about how good the Rangers have been this season that losing three of their last five games constitutes a rough stretch.
