Tortorella wants to 'kick their ass and get outta here' in MSG return
John Tortorella returns to Madison Square Garden on Saturday to face his old Rangers team. Is Torts sentimental? Come on, this is Torts we're talking about.
The Vancouver Canucks make their annual visit to Madison Square Garden on Saturday to take on the New York Rangers, bringing about the long-awaited (OK, not that long) return of former Rangers bench boss John Tortorella. His time in New York was ... memorable.
No matter how it ended, he coached those Rangers for many seasons and had some good times in New York. So does he have anything special planned for his first game back in Manhattan?
Come on, this is John Tortorella we're talking about here.

Would you expect anything different from Torts? You certainly shouldn't. It's not like he's having a big homecoming or anything.
He might get out of the building without visiting any of his former players (who reportedly thew him under the bus, helping to lead to his ouster) but the other reunion many want to see: Tortorella and New York Post writer Larry Brooks.
