John Tortorella: Bruins ‘were the better team’

Posted By DJ Bean On May 25, 2013 @ 9:15 pm In General | 3 Comments

Following the Bruins’ Game 5 victory to advance to the Eastern Conference finals, Rangers coach John Tortorella said that the Bruins deserved the bid to advance more than the Rangers.

“They deserved to win,” Tortorella said. “They were the better team. They deserved to win.”

Tortorella, who has been something of a polarizing figure throughout the series and could be on the hot seat, praised Bruins coach Claude Julien [1], adding that he “can’t believe” that the coach is second-guessed by the local or national media.

Up next for the Bruins are the Penguins [2], with Tortorella saying “Boston has a really good chance.”
