VIDEO: John Tortorella With Another Surly Press Conference

From the time he sat down to the time he stormed off, John Tortorella spent 1:04 seconds in front of the media. This wasn't a classic Tortorella rant-filled press conference, though. It was short, surly and straight cold-blooded. It was another Tortorella classic.

There's video after the jump. We also took a quick tally.

For those scoring at home, that's 35 words. Those 35 words included three "No" answers, two of which came back-to-back after he shot down a follow-up question. He also dropped "I'm gonna keep it in the room" twice.

It's also pretty fun that the media just knows right away when Torts is going to give them the middle finger. They quickly dial it down, knowing nothing they can say or do will get a good answer, or even a usable quote.

Never change, Tort.
