Jets Center Nick Mangold Barking at Tocchet & Crosby
Mangold, wearing a blue Rangers sweater during the Penguins’ 3-1 Game 3 victory, exhibited similar behavior during a Rangers game against the Stars on Jan. 5. On Tuesday he was seen giving it to the Penguins before they took the ice in the third period, and was so out of control, security came over a few times to tell him to calm down, a source said. The Rangers declined to comment.
Mangold, 32, was specifically going at Penguins assistant coach Rick Tocchet and star center Sidney Crosby, pointing at them, a source said, and was seen leaning over the railing to talk trash. When approached by The Post afterward and asked about it, Mangold walked away, waved his hand and said: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
