Cue Justin Moore’s “I Could Kick Your Ass”. That’s what Capitals coach Adam Oates said to reporters after Tortorella criticized the Capitals for complaining about everything except beer prices at Verizon Center after Washington lost to the Rangers in seven games.
“We’ve got everybody and their brother whining out there in Washington about what happened in that series…” ”And I think that’s a big reason they lose that series” Tortorella told the New York Daily News on Thursday.
How does Adam Oates respond? He tells Washington’s 106.7 fm The Fan that “Tort’s” comments were out of line.
“[Tortorella] should be worried about his own series. We didn’t whine once during the series. I never complained. I don’t know, did you guys ever hear me complain about officiating?” he said.
Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was critical of the officiating in the series however.
When asked if he could beat Tortorella up in a fight, Oates responded “Yes, easily.”
Look for this to get interesting. Personally I’d love for this to hit Pay-Per-View! I’d buy this!
