NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Rangers fired combative coach John Tortorella on Wednesday, four days after New York was eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs.
The Rangers’ announcement came shortly after WFAN radio’s Mike Francesa broke the news.
“I don’t know what happened,” Francesa said. “I do know there was some either difference of opinion, argument, fight that really has festered in the last 48 hours — difference of philosophy, difference of opinion, I don’t know exactly what to tell you. All I know is that Tortorella is out as Ranger coach.”
