Tortorella is the Belichick of the NHL Playoff Thread: NYR/NJD

John Tortorella loves him some post-game press conferences. Ok. No. That's completely incorrect. He is mandated by the league to answer questions, win or lose, after all games. It's especially uncomfortable after a loss in the playoffs. Puck Daddy goes through all the ups and downs of Torts pressers.

On to the preview!

GAME 1: New York Rangers at New Jersey Devils, 10:00AM on CBC, NBC, RDS

SBN Sites: Blueshirt Banter & In Lou We Trust

Series Record & Storyline: Jay-Z 1 - Springsteen 1. Are the Devils lucky or are they good? As has been the case throughout the playoffs, if New Jersey is going to win this game, Martin Brodeur is going to need to have a great game. If he's leaky, the Rangers are going to light him up, no question.
