Yesterday John Tortorella went on the Michael Kay Radio Show (ESPN Radio 1050) and said if the playoffs started today Mats Zuccarello would be in the Rangers line-up.
…it was only a few months ago when Zuccarello was buried in Hartford with rumors swirling about him wanting to be traded. Now the guy is basically penciled in the starting line-up for the playoffs. Amazing.
Tortorella also praised his work on the power play as well as his improved foot speed.
