via Katie Strang of ESPN New York, Rangers owner James Dolan upstaged coach John Tortorella at his post-game press conference, making a rare appearance in front of the media.
Dolan, who seemed giddy following the Rangers’ 3-0 win over the streaking Predators, said he feels the Rangers are “pretty close” to winning the Stanley Cup.
After Dolan dismissed himself following two questions, Tortorella good-naturedly countered that he’d like his 29-11-4 team to keep their focus.
“I have my owner up here talking about the Stanley Cup. I think that’s a bunch of ********. We need to take one game at a time.”
