60 Lundqvist and Lupul named assistant all-star captains

I know, I know. It’s a pet peeve of mine. The actual word is alternate captain. But in this case, the assistants will assist the captains in selecting the all-star rosters. Henrik Lundqvist was assigned to countryman Daniel Alfredsson’s team, which means he will play for co-coach John Tortorella. Here’s…

384 Richards ticked at Cooke’s cheap shot; Tortorella on Boston

Was busy at post-practice today, working on Ryan Callahan story for the weekend. But did have time to get Brad Richards’ angry reaction to that pile of carcillo Matt Cooke’s slew foot, and John Tortorella talking about Boston tomorrow. Richards missed practice with a neck that “locked up” after the…

202 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) I said it before and I’ll say it again (though I’m sure it won’t placate any of the NNs, or Chicken Littles, the “fire Torts” gang or plain old trolls. If losing three out of five is as bad as it gets, or even four out of six,…

15 Some post-game interviews

Had some technical difficulties with my story, and with my recorder. So all I’ve got in the way of post-game audio is a short Dan Girardi/Henrik Lundqvist interview and the John Tortorella presser. John Tortorella: Dan Girardi/Henrik Lundqvist:

238 Tortorella post-practice

Some good stuff from John Tortorella after practice today, including his picks for this weekend’s NFL games, his reaction to Jim Dolan’s visit in the coach’s press conference last night, some comments for a story I’m doing on Ryan Callahan, and about Carl Hagelin and what he’s done and what…

169 Rangers-Predators in review (updated)

Bizarre night topped by Jim Dolan, all smiles and giggles, popping into John Tortorella’s press conference. I think what happened is that Dolan was in Tortorella’s office and the coach asked him if he wanted to do the press conference instead of Torts. And Dolan took the dare and went…

51 Dolan speaks post-game!

Some weird happenings after the game … First, because somebody asked, Dan Girardi got the hat. Then Jim Dolan — who hadn’t spoken to the hockey writers since 2005-06 — walked into the press conference with John Tortorella, and talked about the direction of the team, and when he started…

293 Rangers-Canadiens in review

Welcome to the second half. The best team in the East, battling for No. 1 overall, better expect that these bottom-dwellers are going to be fired up to play them. That these teams think it’s a barometer game when they play the Rangers. That there’s no more sneaking up or…
