Combative coach Tortorella fired by Rangers after second-round playoff ouster

The Rangers have fired coach John Tortorella, four days after New York was eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Tortorella was unexpectedly dismissed Wednesday with one-year left on his contract. He led the Rangers to the Eastern Conference finals last year and into the second round this year before New York was eliminated in five games by the Boston Bruins.
