Here's my story for Inside Hockey:

Quote:
NEW YORK – Rangers coach John Tortorella does not make empty threats.

When he tells the media – and you can be sure the same message was delivered to the team – that he’s going to start benching underperforming players, they listen. No one wants a seat in the press box, even for one game.

Consider the message delivered. The Rangers (5-5-0) came out with better energy and more intensity in a 4-1 win over the suddenly-slumping Islanders (4-5-1) Thursday evening at MSG.
