The Rangers and even John Tortorella were ticked off after that hit, and Tortorella shared some words of his own during the post game:
"Absolutely, it’s a cheap, dirty hit," Tortorella said. "I wonder what would happen if we did it to their two whining stars over there, I wonder what would happen? So I’m anxious to see what happens with the league with this. Just no respect among play*ers, none. It’s sickening."
"It’s one of the most arrogant organizaions in the league. They whine about this stuff all the times and look what hap*pens. It’s ridiculous, but they’ll whine about something else over there, won’t they? Starting with their two ********** stars."
