GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- After addressing the media for all of 27 seconds and using only 15 words after losing 3-2 in Game 4 Saturday, Rangers coach John Tortorella was a bit more chatty Sunday at the team's suburban training facility.
Tortorella spoke to the media for more than five minutes and handled 11 questions.
He talked about trying to get pucks through to the net against the Capitals, who have blocked 105 shots through the first four games of the Eastern Conference Semifinal-round series. He discussed Chris Kreider's lack of ice time in the third period Saturday. He also gave a bit of feedback on the play of Artem Anisimov and Carl Hagelin.
Here is the full transcript of Tortorella's chat with the media Sunday:
There has been a lot of talk about them blocking shots. How do you get around that?
"There are all different types of situations that occur during a game. There's a lot of different things you can do, it depends on what is in front of you. We had the puck a lot (Saturday), but as far as getting good, quality scoring chances, I don't think we developed enough."
