Found January 14, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
Coming off a 3-0 shutout loss to the Ottawa Senators, the New York Rangers will look to turn things around tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre. For the Rangers, their focus has to be on getting pucks to the net and making most of their chances. In their last two games, the team has scored just one goal in regulation while not being able to convert on many scoring opportunities.

The team head coach, John Tortorella, <a href="" title="wants to be careful with "Dubi"">wants to be careful with “Dubi” because he knows that they cannot afford to have him out of the lineup for an extended period of time. “It’s still the same,” coach John Tortorella said of Dubinsky’s shoulder, which was initially hurt on a check by the Coyotes’ Taylo...

Disagree With The Coach – Senators @ Rangers Post Game Thoughts…

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...
