First and foremost, I don’t know what you’ve read or where you read it, but when John Tortorella told the Rangers to get off the ice after a brief up-tempo practice, it was in a very positive tone … he liked the way they went through a quick workout, felt they moved past whatever they were feeling off Game 4, and didn’t need them to show him anymore.
It ABSOLUTELY WAS NOT done in anger, or because he was unhappy with anything. Just sayin’.
Also sayin’ there were about 9,000 media clowns in the lockerroom today, so the audio I got is pretty limited. Hope to put up some printed transcripts later.
And Tortorella was pretty good at the podium today, when asked about what he can do to get his top six scorers going, he said, “Pray.”
