Note: Dan Bylsma On John Tortorella’s Rant

At Penguins Report, via Pro Hockey Talk, Dan Bylsma had this to say about John Tortorella’s rant last night:

His postgame comments for a lot of games this year we’ve heard different things from hits, starting lineups, how referees ends games. It’s part of his coaching manual to go off there.

He added, “They’re trying to have an effect where I’m not sure they can have an effect. I think it’s gamesmanship and they’re trying to have someone hear them. Whether it’s the referees or whom I don’t know.”

Bylsma is referencing Tortorella’s comments after the Winter Classic about the referees and then his issue with Pete DeBoer recently.
