Here is Rangers coach John Tortorella’s post-practice press conference from Friday. He had some interesting things to say about the team’s Game 4 effort, about Ryan McDonagh and Chris Kreider, among other topics. Video by Rick Carpiniello.
The video of the John Tortorella presser will be up shortly. He had some interesting things to say about Ryan McDonagh and Chris Kreider. Also, the news: Brad Richards skated with the Black Aces today. Chris Kreider, apparently still feeling that injury above his left eye, did not skate.
Is it possible? Um. Probably not. But ya boys can sure make things interesting if they can somehow win Saturday evening in Boston. Like Derick Brassard said, “We’re looking forward to going to Boston. The pressure is on them. Toronto came back from 3-1 and it’s possible. We just want… Read More →

As you’ve seen/heard by now, Brad Richards is a healthy scratch tonight, and is certainly done as a Ranger (unless they somehow come back in this series, maybe?) … He will be bought out after the season, the Rangers paying him $24 million over 14 years as a parting gift… Read More →
Brad Richards, who less than two years ago signed a nine-year, $60 million free agent contract to become a Ranger, will now be an ex-Ranger. Richards was informed by his long-time ally and coach John Tortorella this morning that he will be a healthy scratch for Game 4 against Boston… Read More →

Ooops. Sorry, I forgot to post this one earlier.
Here is John Tortorella’s post-practice press conference, in which he spoke about reaching a new level of effort, about the loss of Anton Stralman, about how the series has gone so far, etc.
The Powe interview has to do with his being part of the 2010 Philly team that came back from 0-3 against Boston to win that playoff series.
More to follow later, including video of John Tortorella’s presser, and an interview with Darroll Powe, who probably won’t play tomorrow, but who was part of the Philadelphia team that came back from 0-3 to beat Boston in the 2010 playoffs.
Save your breath some of you, and stop praying that Darren Dreger’s speculation on the radio might be true. John Tortorella is not getting fired in a 48-game season when two of his three best skaters played like garbage and the team won a playoff round and sure hasn’t quit;... Read More →
I didn’t get the recorder in there on time with the media horde, but Brian Boyle’s interview, when I got in there, began with him completely blaming himself for the Rangers’ lack of possession, because “I can’t win a freakin’ faceoff … just terrible.” He was 4 of 21 in… Read More →
