His post-game press conference lasted about 80 seconds, and included a couple of highlights.
- When asked about a four-minute power play that resulted in zero goals and few chances, Tortorella responded by simply saying, "It sucked."
- When asked about the play of Derek Stepan he said he wasn't going to discuss individual players and then added, "stop coaching, Pat," when he was pressed on the matter.
- His reaction (and facepalm) at the 46-second mark of the video posted above when discussing his use of the timeout.
Even when they're short, his meetings with the media are never dull. He's already been fined a total of $50,000 this season for comments made about the officiating in the Winter Classic, as well as an epic rant following a game in Pittsburgh late in the season.
Still, this wasn't even his shortest presser of the season.
Back in October following a game in Edmonton he simply emerged from his office and said "we sucked from head to toe" and refused to answer any questions. Prior to Game 6 of the Rangers opening round series against Ottawa he went through an entire press conference using just six words, which might be his most impressive one of the year.
