GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - On the first day of the New York Rangers training camp, coach John Tortorella took a different approach with his team.
``It was good, good at first. It tailed, to be expected,'' Tortorella said following a two-hour practice at the team's facility in Greenburgh.
``(Sunday) started off really well, but tailed pretty quickly. But that's to be expected.
``We don't want to injure (them). If we did the amount of work we did in a regular camp in our first day, today, we wouldn't be able to play. I'm relying on the players, the leadership group, each day to let me know how they feel. It's a different dynamic this year so I have a tremendous amount of trust in our team so I'm relying on them to let me know how they feel.''
