John Tortorella Holds Outstanding Press Conference: We Sucked from Head to Toe

Rangers coach John Tortorella conducted one of the best press conferences we’ve seen recently. And by press conference, we mean brief monologue.

Tortorella was upset with his team’s 2-0 loss to the Oilers Saturday night, a game where they gave up a goal and assist to top overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. He was also frustrated that goaltender Henrik Lundqvist left the game with a foot injury. This is how his postgame media session went:

It probably didn’t help that the Rangers couldn’t score on a 5 on 3 in the second period, or that they went 0-4 on the power play. You would think the team had lost 10 straight or something, but they’re only 2-2-2. Imagine what happens if they actually drop below .500.

    Torty has been a trip since his days with the old Erie Golden Blades in 82. I remember a game when he was behind the bench in a v neck t shirt and jeans…glad to see someone taught him to dress along the way. He rode Rick Dudley’s coattails all the way to the cup
