Saturday Update: Part 2 of our break-up day interview with Tortorella on the future of the Rangers at BB+ today -- click here to read it.
John Tortorella spoke candidly yesterday about how the Rangers’ season ended and how he intended to move the team forward into next season. The results, for the sake of fans who want to know what the coach was thinking, was phenomenal. We’re going to present the whole thing for you. But there’s so much, we’re going to break it down into sections. Today, we’ll get Tortorella’s look back at his first two months as head coach, mostly regarding the recently concluded playoff series, lost to Washington after the Rangers raced to a 3-1 series lead, including his take on what happened with the fans at the end of Game 5, why he scratched Sean Avery that game, and why he let Chris Drury play with a fractured hand.
