Canucks’ John Tortorella To Return Tonight


Vancouver Canucks head coach is set to return to coaching tonight in Detroit as his team takes on the Red Wings after he was suspended 15 days for charging the Calgary Flames locker room just after the first period on Jan. 18.

“It hasn’t been a great two weeks,” Tortorella said on Monday morning, via ESPN. “It’s been very embarrassing for my family, myself and more importantly everybody else around me that I’m supposed to represent.”

While he was gone, his team has suffered a 2-4 record, while losing three consecutive games as they cling to the last wild-card spot in the Western Conference.
