John Tortorella (I believe the first question is about Gaborik’s line; he had some interesting things to say about the rest of this season; and also late in the interview, about Ruslan Fedotenko having Wojtek Wolski looking over his shoulder):
BEST OF MAXIM
Following Monday's Winter Classic Rangers coach John Tortorella's comments suggested that the league and officials were conspiring to get the game to overtime. On Wednesday, in his first public comments since the, Tortorella was singing a completely different tune via Blueshirts United.
"They were sarcastic comments by me at the wrong time, and it was
Per Dan Rosen of NHL.com, Rangers coach John Tortorella has clinched his spot to coach in the All Star Game. Tortorella clinched his spot with last night’s win over the Panthers, ensuring that the Rangers will have at least the second best record in the Eastern Conference. The best record may wind up belonging to the Boston Bruins, but Claude Julien is already pre-selected to coach...
New York Rangers coach John Tortorella says it was just playful sarcasm in regards to his comments after the Winter Classic 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
Those comments, more specifically, is when he eluded to the referees and NBC getting together to bring the game into overtime:
“I’m not sure if NBC got together with the refs to turn this into an overtime...
For starters, I do not think that New York Rangers’ head coach John Tortorella needed to apologize for the comments he made about the officiating after the 2012 Winter Classic in Monday evening.
The officiating was inconsistent and while it was obviously not “fixed” to go into overtime, the officials certainly tried to get it to that point. They either let of things go that...
From Dan Rosen at NHL.com:
The Rangers’ overtime win Thursday was significant for more than just the fact that it preserved their lead in the Eastern Conference standings. John Tortorella also clinched a spot on one of the benches in the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game.
The coach of the team in each conference with the best points percentage through games played on Jan. 9...
John Tortorella does not want his players buying into Stanley Cup hype, at least not three months into the season since no team is the same in the spring as in January. The results so far suggest otherwise for a team with one Stanley Cup in more than 70 years.
John Tortorella called reporters' questions about whether the New York Rangers are ready to make a Stanley Cup run ...
Tom Schreier’s response to John Tortorella’s rant after the Winter Classic.
An apology didn't get John Tortorella off the hook. The NHL fined the Rangers coach for criticizing Winter Classic refs and suggesting, perhaps sarcastically, a conspiracy to force OT.
It won’t take a potential fine for Rangers coach John Tortorella to be sorry for his criticism of the referees following the team’s 3-2 Winter Classic win in Philadelphia on Monday.
Before taking any questions from reporters following the Rangers practice on Wednesday, Tortorella requested the chance to...
Is it possible to silently be amongst the league leaders in goals scored? If it is, consider Marian Gaborik Exhibit A. Marian Gaborik doesn’t get quite the attention of Steven Stamkos, Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Alex Ovechkin or any of the other elite goal-scorers in the league, but so far this season he’s certainly deserved [...]
If there was one certainty heading into the 2011-2012 season, it was that this Rangers’ team coached by John Tortorella was going to work hard. It has been their blueprint for several seasons now, and it was this lunch pail approach, manifested in their choice of Ryan Callahan as Captain, that brought the club to the point where they were capable of competing with any opponent...
NEW YORK (AP) -- Marian Gaborik scored 3:29 into overtime for the New York Rangers, who outlasted the Florida Panthers 3-2 and moved to the top of the NHL standings on Thursday night with their eighth win in nine games.
Gaborik took a drop pass from Derek Stepan in the high slot and slapped in a drive for his 23rd goal of the season. New York (25-9-4) stayed one point ahead of Boston...
