The New York Rangers fired head coach John Tortorella on Wednesday, days after the team was eliminated by the Boston Bruins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, according to a tweet from ESPN hockey writer Katie Strang.

Tortorella, who spent four years as head coach of the Rangers, had brought the team to its third ever 50-win season in 2011-12, good for the best record in the Eastern Conference with a 51-24-7 record, and became a finalist for the Jack Adams award, which ended up going to Ken Hitchcock of  the St. Louis Blues. Tortorella's Rangers then fell to the New Jersey Devils in the Conference Finals last year, and posted a 26-18-4 record this season.
