The NHL has announced that John Tortorella has been fined $20,000 for his comments in the post game last night.
“It’s a cheap dirty hit. I wonder what would happen if we did it to their two whining stars over there? I wonder what would happen? I am anxious to see what happens with the league with this. There is just no respect amongst the players.
It’s one of the most arrogant organizations in the league. They whine about this kind of stuff all the time and then look what happens. It’s ridiculous…they will whine about something else over….. there about their two ******* stars”
No supplemental discipline for Brooks Orpik’s hit last night on Stepan.

#NYR Gotta be honest, I find it absurd NHL fines Tortorella while also promoting his comments via official Twitter acct. One or the other
