Tortorella refuses to discuss adjustments

BOSTON -- In addition to being entertaining during a press conference Saturday at TD Garden, New York Rangers coach John Tortorella was mysterious when it came to discussing potential adjustments heading into Game 2 in their Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Boston Bruins, to be played Sunday at TD Garden (3 p.m. ET, NBC, RDS, TSN).

Tortorella first described himself as not being a "big adjustment guy" before saying his team was looking at "some small things after Game 1."

However, the kicker of his statement was the most mysterious part, and one he did not want to elaborate on.

"To me, it's not so much on the ice. There are some other adjustments we have to go through," Tortorella said. "I'm not going to tell you, but there are some other adjustments we have to go through and a lot of it really isn't on the ice."

When pushed further on the topic, Tortorella said, "I don't want to talk too much about it. I'll answer that question later in the series."

He would not specify when.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
