Video: Torts "I'd Try To Break His Ankles" Postgame

John Tortorella is known for having some entertaining press conferences, but his brutal honesty in tonight's presser was something to behold.  When asked about the missed spear call on Staal by Burrows, the coach certainly did not hold back.

“It’s ridiculous,” Tortorella said. “It’s dangerous. The thing that bothers me is how don’t you see it? And that’s what was told to me, that they didn’t see it. That’s a dangerous play on Marc Staal. It’s beyond me how two guys don’t see it. If I’m Marc Staal, I try to retaliate too. I try to break his ankles.”

Good for Tortorella for standing up for his star defender.
