The pre-game presser started off slowly, as many do, but it picked up … John Tortorella ended up talking about Brandon Prust (he’s had to ask him not to fight some players because Prust is too good a player), and about the power play.
You might hear at one point early (around :40) a couple of thuds. That’s Tortorella banging his forehead on the microphone out of frustration with the questions.

HENRIK LUNDQVIST LAUNCHES CROWN COLLECTION TO BENEFIT THE GARDEN OF DREAMS FOUNDATION
Crown Collection Apparel Available Exclusively at Madison Square Garden Beginning Today
New York, January 19, 2012 – New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist today launched the Crown Collection, a selection of apparel he designed that will benefit the Garden of Dreams Foundation. Launching the Crown Collection is just one way that Lundqvist, a spokesperson for the Foundation, is committed to helping fulfill Garden of Dreams’ mission of making dreams come true for children facing obstacles. In the six years since the Foundation’s inception, Lundqvist has inspired thousands of special children through Rangers ticket donations and hosting events.
The Crown Collection, which features a crown logo with Lundqvist’s number thirty at the center, will include a distressed-style baseball hat and tee-shirt available in adult and youth sizes. The Collection will be sold exclusively at retail stores at Madison Square Garden beginning today. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Garden of Dreams.
“I am very excited to debut the Crown Collection,” said Lundqvist. “I have had this idea for a while now and it’s really exciting to finally see it come to life. I look forward to sharing this with my fans, and most importantly, raising money and awareness for the Garden of Dreams Foundation, an organization that does amazing work to raise the spirits of children who have been dealt a tough hand.”
