Before we get to interviews with John Tortorella and Henrik Lundqvist there’s this.
Derek Stepan, rookie from Minnesota, had a Yankees jersey hanging in his locker and was walking around wearing a Yankees cap. The reason? He had a bet with one of the equipment guys on each of the games of the ALDS.
Stepan’s not a huge Twins fan, but he has been to games in the new ballpark this summer, and he said he was uncomfortable wearing the cap.
“I feel a little itchy right now,” he smiled.
