Kukla's Korner Hockey

Atlanta has lost four straight games by a combined score of 22-2, but the angriest coach after the game was Tampa Bay's John Tortorella. He directed an expletive-filled tirade at Eric Boulton, who took out Paul Ranger of the Lightning with a cheap shot just 2 ½ minutes from the end of the rout. ''The . . . guy should be playing in the . . . East Coast Hockey League, but instead he takes out a . . . NHLer,'' Tortorella said. ``He'll be suspended, but who . . . cares? No one wants to see him on the ice anyway.'' Atlanta's Bob Hartley was seen going into Tortorella's office after the game, but the Tampa Bay coach wouldn't say what they discussed. ''None of your business,'' Tortorella said, before storming away to the team bus.
