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

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
