Wow nice fights. Don't see how any hockey fan can complain.

not shocked to see Janssen/Prust fight. That goes back to their Flame and Blues days when Janssen's dirty elbow broke Prust's jaw.

They actually fought a few times in juniors as well.

No team in the NHL (especially 2 teams in playoff spots) are going to have their 4th line attack another team's first line in the beginning of a game (unless a 1st liner had done something to warrant it in a previous game).

These teams flat out hate each other. Stems from Dubinsky's comments about Clarkson and Carter's fight with Dubinsky from last game.

I don't disagree. So why doesn't DeBoer pencil the Devils first line in to start the game? Same reason Torts put his fourth line out there - lack of trust.

Didn't Janssen also break his nose in a fight? Or maybe I'm thinking of someone else

Honestly, I would have done the same thing.
When a coach does something like that, you have to respond. You don't sit there and let them try and intimidate you off the start. Anyone saying Torts was in the wrong is absurd.

For the record, I don't mind DeBoer doing it at all. I'd of been way more pissed had Torts not responded and allowed the Devils to intimidate the team off the start. DeBoer was playing some old time ****. No problem with that. He got what he wanted.

Guess it would have been Salvador v. Dubinsky and Zidlicky v. Staal?

Love seeing a good line brawl (even if the D didn't get involved).

I'm actually surprised Dubinsky didn't drop the gloves. Figured he and Salvador would've went at it.

I'm kind of glad Salvador didn't. He's more than capable, but with his history of concussions, I'd rather he not if he can avoid it.

Dubinsky got moved to the blue line at the last second in place of Stu Bickel (who's a defenseman); Bickel took the faceoff.

Makes sense. That's obviously why Staal didn't drop them as well. Makes much more sense looking at it that way.

DeBoer's comments about Tortarella (I will never remember how to spell his name for some reason)

DeBoer: "I guess in John's world you can come into our building and start your tough guys but we can't do the same here. He either has short term memory loss or he's a hypocrite. It's one or the other."

Honestly, didn't even remember that Tortarella did that. Makes his meltdown even more hilarious. I think he just has a 'scream like a lunatic' quota. It's literally every game.

So, is DeBoer lying? Because from what we can find, the Rangers started:

Anisimov - Stepan - Gaborik on March 6th. Maybe DeBoer "has short term memory loss."

Where are you checking starting lines? Somehow I doubt DeBoer made it up. Especially considering this isn't the first time there's been a fight off the top. Think he was talking about the December game.

Either way, Torts losing it was quite entertaining. He's always whining about something.

Salvador would have kicked Dubinsky's ass but I doubt anyone wants him fighting due to his concussion problems. Same may go for Staal, although 3 fights was perfectly enough here.

I hope Torts responds to those comments.

I actually re-watched the opening faceoffs for all three games the Rangers played at the Devils this year. Anisimov-Stepan-Gaborik for March 6. Dubinsky-Richards-Callahan for January 31. But it was Rupp-Fedotenko-Prust on December 20. Rupp and Janssen dropped the gloves immediately.
