195 Rangers-Panthers in review

For all the complaining we (I) did about the outdoor game, it was a downer going back indoors, especially at the World’s Quietest Arena. What a shame. Could you imagine a first-place team in the middle of a season in the 1970s or ’80s and the kind of intimidation MSG…

35 Post-game interviews

John Tortorella (I believe the first question is about Gaborik’s line; he had some interesting things to say about the rest of this season; and also late in the interview, about Ruslan Fedotenko having Wojtek Wolski looking over his shoulder): Brad Richards: Marian Gaborik: Martin Biron: Marc Staal:

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…

Rangers coach John Tortorella will not be suspended, but he will be fined (the amount expected to be announced later today) for his comments about the officiating and an NBC conspiracy he made after the Winter Classic. Tortorella spoke with NHL VP Colin Campbell about the comments, and told reporters…

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…
