Rangers owner James Dolan upstaged coach John Tortorella at his postgame press conference, making a rare appearance in front of the media.

Dolan, who seemed giddy following the Rangers' 3-0 win over the streaking Predators, said he feels the Rangers are "pretty close" to winning the Stanley Cup.

After Dolan dismissed himself after two questions, Tortorella good-naturedly countered that he'd like his 29-11-4 team to stay focused.

"I have my owner up here talking about the Stanley Cup," Tortorella said. "I think that's a bunch of bull----. We need to take one game at a time."
