from Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants,
John Tortorella is still facing an NHL fine but before taking questions after his Rangers practiced today, the coach asked the media for a few minutes to address his post-game comments from Monday’s 3-2 win over the Flyers in the Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park.
After the victory, Tortorella, angered by some late game penalties and non-calls, particularly a penalty shot awarded to the Flyers Daniel Briere with 19.6 seconds remaining in regulation, suggested during his post-game press conference that the NHL and NBC met to see if they could take the game to overtime.
Tortorella issued a wide-ranging apology for what he called his “tongue-in-cheek” comments and lamented that he “tainted” a “first-class operation” in the Winter Classic “with my mouth.”
added 7:57pm, Numerous reports are a $30,000 fine for Tortorella.
