John Tortorella Rips Devils

Rangers coach John Tortorella ripped the Devils on Sunday, accusing them of selling penalty calls and skirting the rules.

Livid with Devils coach Pete DeBoer's postgame comments about Rangers tough guy Brandon Prust, DeBoer said Prust was "head-hunting" on an elbowing play that left Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov shaken up, Tortorella rattled off his own complaints.

He began with two incidents involving Devils players, a hit from Dainius Zubrus on Anton Stralman in the first period and Zach Parise's on Michael Del Zotto in the third, and didn't stop there.

"I look at Zubrus' elbow to Stralman, I look at Parise launching himself into Del Zotto," Tortorella said. "Maybe if our players stay down on the ice, we'll get something."
