Our very public confrontations were the tip of an iceberg. So much more was unseen. I will share this: At the start of the 2012-13 season when I had a medical issue, Tortorella was kind, caring and compassionate. That holds more meaning than being professionally disrespected.

Even Strength Play Saving Rangers In Postseason

To say the Rangers power play is struggling might literally be the biggest understatement of the century. They’re just 3-for-33 in the playoffs and are currently in an 0-for-25 funk dating back to Game 2 of their first round series against the Flyers.
