89 Tortorella pre-game

Here’s John Tortorella’s pre-game presser. He wouldn’t talk about the fine. He spoke a bit about the team no longer being able to sneak up on anybody. He wasn’t asked if he met with NBC to discuss the outcome of tonight’s game (just kidding! settle down!) Here is is:

196 Tortorella’s fine: $30,000

He got his money’s worth. Rangers coach John Tortorella knew he messed up as soon as he said the words about the referees and NBC conspiring to try to get the Winter Classic to overtime (see post below for the money quote). And whether he was being sarcastic (which I…

154 King Henrik … best in the business?

I’m sure I told you my boss is a pretty serious Rangers fan. So he was one of the happiest guys on the planet Monday and, still, Tuesday. In speaking to his smiling self, he made a point that I couldn’t argue. He told me, and asked if I…

344 Winter Classic: Rangers-Flyers in review

Glad that’s over. The NHL will be thrilled — and Gary Bettman clearly was, bogarting the stage as NHL Network’s first interview on the never-ending post-game show — because it made a ton of money, got a zillion eyeballs to watch, sold a gazillion pieces of merchandise. But the all-Philadelphia…

121 Henrik Lundqvist post-game presser

Courtesy of ASAP Sports: HENRIK LUNDQVIST:   He’s a tricky guy, obviously there’s a lot of pressure on me there.  I couldn’t believe it when he called the penalty shot, but it was exciting.  The whole game was exciting.  Pretty intense.  It was great.  But yeah, just tried to be patient…

5 Tortorella post-game presser

Courtesy of ASAP Sports: Q.  Can you explain the changes in personnel you made and the effect you thought that had on the game? JOHN TORTORELLA:  Well, we were still?? no one in particular.  And again, big problem with our game, the first half of that game, was just not…

It will be fun seeing some of the old-timers back in uniform. Not sure it’s two and a half hours worth of fun. I’m sure some of the players will be mic’d up and no doubt interviewed while on the bench. I just hope that the broadcast doesn’t become more…
