Elliott Pap: The NHL on Tortorella: “His actions were both dangerous and an embarrassment to the League.”
Elliott Pap: Tortorella can return on Feb. 3rd against the Red Wings.
Wes Gilbertson: Colin Campbell on Hartley: “We are holding Mr. Hartley responsible for the actions of Flames’ right wing Kevin Westgarth, who took the game’s opening face-off and attempted to instigate a premeditated fight with an unwilling opponent.”
