John Tortorella takes a lot of heat from the press for his demeanor during post game press conferences, but last night he should have gotten a medal for biting his lip (00:25 mark)...

....did that reporter seriously ask Torts if the Rangers strategy for Game 2 will be to have LESS traffic in front of Holtby? In the history of the NHL, has any team's strategy ever been to send as few players as possible to the net? Rangers fans have been screaming for more bodies in front of the net for years and now, after the Rangers finally do it, this yo-yo is asking if they'll stop.
...how does that guy get a press credential?
Before last night's game Tortorella set ground rules with the press (via Daily News)...
“I want to get along, but I’m not going to talk about injuries, and I’m certainly not going to talk about the lineup every day. You guys think it’s just changing lines for the sake of changing lines and I’m an idiot. But I think it’s important in certain situations if you need to change something with the momentum of your team.”
...Torts should have also told them "no stupid questions."
