07:23 AM ET 05.21 | Carl Hagelin begs to differ. [Hagelin] spoke in his own defense after coach John Tortorella said Hagelin "stinks" on the power play on Saturday. Hagelin logged 46 seconds of power-play time in Game 2, nearly scoring in the second period on his lone power-play shot. "To be on it, it felt good to be on it," Hagelin said. ... "(The puck) was a little bit behind me so (Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask) was cheating, too, coming across," Hagelin added. "it was better to go far side and he made a good save. He's lucky Cally (captain Ryan Callahan) doesn't put it in. For me, I definitely don't think I stink on the power play. That's the only comment I have on the PP."

Carl, most coaches want their team to score...it helps the team win games...then again, not so sure with Arthur Fonzarelli.

it's as close as they're going to get
And quite honestly, what were they expecting?
1) yeah? Well he can go (insert coice of expletive here)that miserable (insert next expletive)
2) Yeah, he's right...I do stink......

This is why coaches get annoyed at the sportswriters....

A faux controversy. It would have been best for Torts to say whatever he wanted to Hagelin and not to start a ******* contest in public. Much adieu about not a whole lot.

I agree that this is mild and not exactly inflammatory, but do the Rangers need this right now? Tortorella goes into this series picking fights with the Caps and then bashes one of his players when a simple "No comment" would have sufficed.

Still wouldn't Torts be a great guy to work for?

The whole power play stinks, not just Hagelin.
