“I had major concerns after the game in Pittsburgh,” Tortorella said. “You don’t want to whine in this league about it, but I did have a conversation with Murph and Colie regarding that, not only some of the non-calls against us but some of the calls against us and some of the non-calls against them. But I don’t want that to take on a life of its own. I think, as a coach and manager, you need to be aware of that as the year goes on and if you have a gripe, you talk about it. But we certainly don’t want to get into a situation where we’re going to whine about it all the time.”
Torts also spoke with the team about not reacting to bad calls saying that they should let him and assistant Mike Sullivan worry about the refs.
…the Rangers were able to overcome the officiating last time, hopefully they won’t need to worry about it again tonight.
