1. Tortorella not happy with the Penguins
April 5, 2012
Tortorella was upset about a knee-on-knee hit to Derek Stepan delivered by the Penguins' Brooks Orpik in the final five minutes of the game, which the Rangers lost 5-2.
"It's a cheap, dirty hit. I wonder what would happen if we did it to their two whining stars over there. I wonder what would happen?" asked Torts. "It's one of the most arrogant organizations in the league. They whine about this stuff all the time, and look what happens."
