Gaborik Not Benched vs. Jets

gaborikJohn Tortorella explains to Larry Brooks at the New York Post that Marian Gaborik played only 3:03 on four shifts in the third period against the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night because the Rangers spent so much time in their own end, which limited the opportunity to get him on the ice because it was necessary to allot more time to checking-oriented players…

“It was not a benching,” Tortorella said. “Gabby has probably been our most consistent forward.”

…if it’s not a benching then it’s just a bad job by Torts not getting the Rangers best offensive player ice time when the team is struggling offensively. Maybe if Torts had a player with some actual offensive ability on the ice the puck wouldn’t be in the Rangers end so much.
