More Rangers, means more John Tortorella

The best thing about the New York Rangers advancing in the playoffs is that we're guaranteed more John Tortorella press conferences and more reactions like this on the bench. This one is during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against Boston, apparently asking "WHERE IS MUSKY?"

Where's the dive, ref?

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock wanted to know why Chicago's Marian Hossa wasn't called for a dive, and he had a funny way of asking.


Don't worry, Phil Kessel can be rebuilt

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel had a few screws loose in the first round against the Boston Bruins. The good news is that's an easy problem to fix.
