Video: John Tortorella vs Larry Brooks – Part 2
It’s no secret that John Tortorella and Larry Brooks aren’t the best of friends. They’ve already had one squabble and that was when Torts was still with the Lightning.
Here is part two from tonight after the 2-0 loss to the Flyers.
Some time into the press conference, Brooks asks Tortorella if the Rangers should have taken a third man in penalty. Tortorella refuses to answer and tells Brooks that he won’t be answering any of his questions. Apparently, Tortorella wouldn’t answer any of Brooks’ questions due to something that Brooks wrote about Wade Redden.
Earlier this week against the Canadiens, Wade Redden got a fighting major sticking up for his teammates. Brooks thought “it was funny.”
I wouldn’t call it funny, Larry. I’d say it was shocking, unexpected, fantastic, unforgettable. But funny? I dunno.
I will say that the best part is seeing Brian Leetch finally showing some emotion while trying not to laugh at what he just saw. Leetchie is getting more and more comfortable with each appearance on MSG and I hope to see him for a long time.
