Absolutely loved Sean Avery cracking up at Artem Anisimov in the locker room after "rifle" celebration against Tampa. To me that was the best part of the episode. It let you know exactly how the team felt about it, which is great. You can see Marian Gaborik crack a smile afterward as well.
Avery laugh is at the 1:08 mark...
Close second for favorite scene was with Callahan's grandmother. Tear jerker for sure.
For my best of John Tortorella click the "Read More" tab below.
As far as best John Tortorella quote, I loved this (via ESPN.com)...
"With Kessel, if you have a chance, finish him," said Tortorella. "He's a good player, but don't shit your pants on him. Don't play off of him. We have to still try to take time and space from him."
Most interesting Torts moment was when he asked Mike Sullivan if he should pull Hank in Toronto game.
Also loved Jeff Woywitka getting stuck with paying the $2,500 bill with Lundqvist. Not sure the guy's salary is $2,500.
...would love to hear everyone's favorite part in the comments section.
...big tahnks to reader Anthony G. for screen grab of Avery.
My favorite was seeing Callahan with his family. And I love Prust even more after the first episode.
@thenyrblog why was Avery a healthy scratch against the stars?..
Prust is pretty damn funny: telling the kids in the Limo he was only in a fight ONCE, and then giving Gaby shit for drinking the night before the game.
I live hearing the Europeans mess up English. Gaborik..."there's no going around the bushes...LOL!"
The Avery smirk was the best, although I lived seeing Dubi screaming from the penalty box and the opening showing Prust fighting in slow mo!
Can't wait for the next installment.
@thenyrblog I just noticed how Torts becomes Al Pacino from Any Given Sunday for a second in that speech after Artie's penalties
