Following The New York Rangers 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils John Tortorella was giving a presser and a phone went off, which didn’t make J.T. too pleased. Jay Greenberg of The New York Post was the unlucky lad who had forgotten to put his phone on silent, and when it interrupted Torts, the gloves came off. Torts responded in typical and glorious fashion with profanity. via Puck Daddy Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

John Tortorella didn’t say a thing in his game 2 press conference except that he’ll ‘keep it in the room’

Well, that isn’t exactly the full truth. He did say “no” a handful of times during his press conference after the Rangers 3-2 loss to the Devils. He also gave a couple contrite answers. And once he decided that he was done answering questions, he leaves the room. Seems like walking out of press conferences is becoming the thing to do during this season’s post season. No...

Leave the game alone – Part Deux

There seems to be a lot of discussion on what would open up the game of hockey.
