Of the four teams remaining in the Stanley Cup playoffs, each one plays a distinctly defensive game. And [Tortorella] has his ideas why. "To me, I think they need to put the red line back in," Tortorella said [Sunday]. ... "Because it's a game of ping-pong," Tortorella said. "The game is a long pass, forecheck, defend. Another long pass, forecheck, defend." With a history of fines for criticizing the league, Tortorella then looked at the NHL representative in the room and added, "I better just leave it at that."
