Tortorella Not Happy With Hit On Stanton By Konopka

from Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun,

John Tortorella didn’t want to talk much about the injury to rookie defenceman Ryan Stanton, but he had something to say about the call made on the play.

Wild heavyweight Zenon Konopka received a two-minute tripping minor after he shoved Stanton from behind and into the end boards early in the second period. Stanton fell awkwardly to the ice and appeared to turn his left ankle.

Tortorella had a heated conversation with referee Tim Peel about the call.
