Rangers' coach Tortorella fined for comments
New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella has been fined for comments made following Monday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
NEW YORK -- New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella has been fined for comments made following Monday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"There is no acceptable explanation or excuse for commentary challenging the integrity of the League, its officials or its broadcast partners," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. "People can disagree with calls by officials on the ice, but even in instances of the utmost frustration there is no justification for speaking as inappropriately and irresponsibly as Mr. Tortorella did."








Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
