Video: Tortorella Optimistic Moving Forward

Head coach John Tortorella actually stuck around to give an insightful postgame press conference following last night's 5-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils at MSG, so I thought I'd share this landmark event. Plus, there's not much else to say after what went down last night and what needs to be done in Game 6.    Will have any significant updates from practice later...

When it was over, a few moments after his team's season had come to an end, Rangers coach John Tortorella uttered six words that offered a glimpse into his psyche.

Torts/DeBoer Rivalry Within the Rivalry

It obviously all started with the line brawl game in March, but the hatred between John Tortorella and Pete DeBoer really started percolating this weekend after the Devils coach said Brandon Prust was a 'headhunter' to which the Rangers General responded by calling out the Devils for diving to get calls. And it all finally came to a head last night in the third period......

Rangers Are Calm Before Must Win Game

from Katie Strang of ESPN New York, The closest thing to a guarantee from the Rangers heading into a do-or-die Game 6 against the Devils on Friday? Coach John Tortorella’s prediction about his star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s impending performance: “He’ll play his best game tomorrow night,” Tortorella proclaimed. A later line of questioning prompted Tortorella to...

Todd Cordell: Devils jump out to early lead, don't look back as they tie series at 2

Last night the New Jersey Devils came out flying, capitalized on some scoring chances early and didn't look back as they went on to defeat the Rangers 4-1 to tie the series at two wins a piece.

McGuire Goes Silent

from Neil Best of Newsday, Pierre McGuire, NBC’s “Inside the Glass” hockey reporter, declined Tuesday to go beyond what he shared with his TV audience about the Game 4 argument between coaches John Tortorella of the Rangers and Peter DeBoer of the Devils - which wasn’t much. “They weren’t having an amiable conversation about what they were going to do for dinner in the...

All Hail to the Kings…

     The LA Kings defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 in Overtime last night to win the Clarence Campbell Bowl that is awarded to the Western Conference Champions.

Torts expects best from Rangers in must-win game

Whether the New York Rangers truly believed they could overcome a 3-2 playoff series deficit earlier this year doesn't matter now. The Rangers did it against the pesky eighth-seeded Ottawa Senators in the first round, giving them confidence they can pull it off again against the formidable New Jersey Devils and reach the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in 18 years. The...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Lord Stanley Approaches

Just a few things that caught my eye ... John Tortorella must feel like he's stuck in his own personal Groundhog Day -- how many horrific first periods can one team have? Five shots, three goals? That praying thing didn't seem to work. The Devils weren't as good as their start. And the Rangers (the team) weren't nearly as bad as theirs. But...

Rangers Showed Life, Not Lack of Composure, with Game 4 Antics

It's incredible to think how differently two separate minds could interpret one single series of events.
