Larry Brooks at the New York Post has this quote from Michael Del Zotto on why the Rangers have been so successful this season…
“Obviously we have some skill, but we do the little things to win games,” said Michael Del Zotto. “That’s basically the character of our team.”
…and it’s noticeable, not only to Rangers fans, but those around the league as I was at the game with my brother-in-law last night, who is an Islanders fan, and he couldn’t believe the Rangers shot blocking prowess. Which is one of those little things Del Zotto is alluding to.
…and the person who deserves all the credit for sculpting the character of this team is John Tortorella who is putting himself in line for an Adams trophy win.
