Tortorella Has Altercation With Fan

Posted April 24, 2009

During New York’s 4-0 loss to the Capitals on Friday, Rangers coach John Tortorella got into a spat with a fan sitting behind him. He would not comment on the situation after the game, and a member of the Rangers staff threatened to end the press conference if the journalists didn’t stop asking about it (obviously upset, the only thing Tortorella commented on at length was the power play and penalty kill, like anyone really cared about that). Puck Daddy’s Greg Wyshynski did some digging around on this.

(Editors Note : Tortorella is a bit abrasive in a press conference, especially after losing)
