At Penguins Report, via Pro Hockey Talk, Dan Bylsma had this to say about John Tortorella's rant last night:

His postgame comments for a lot of games this year we?ve heard different things from hits, starting lineups, how referees ends games. It?s part of his coaching manual to go off there.
He added, "They?re trying to have an effect where I?m not sure they can have an effect. I think it?s gamesmanship and they?re trying to have someone hear them. Whether it?s the referees or whom I don?t know."

Bylsma is referencing Tortorella's comments after the Winter Classic about the referees and then his issue with Pete DeBoer recently.

?They do some a few things similar and handful of things different than we do, but I just think it?s the real consistency with which they?ve played their game, both offensively and defensively, that has been the strength of their team. They haven?t gone through bad stretches, they haven?t gotten into losing streaks, they?ve rebounded, played big games, just the consistency with which they?ve played. Last year I didn?t think they had that type of consistency to their game.
