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…
