Tough break for Rangers enforcer Colton Orr, who was likely to get a rare spot in the lineup tonight, but is instead face down in a toilet right about now with food poisoning. It only goes to show: a guy can have knuckles worn to the bone from fighting, but even he isn’t immune to an undercooked piece of meat.
In the interest of public service, I asked Tom Renney to disclose the offending restaurant where Orr ate last night, but the Rangers coach, decent to a fault, wouldn’t cooperate.
Of course, Orr’s night hovering over the porcelain means Nigel Dawes gets another chance to make an impression on the Rangers coaching staff and perhaps stave off a return trip to Hartford. Come to think of it, I smell a conspiracy. Remind me to ask Dawes where he was around dinner time last night….
“He’s a backside threat and a slot threat. He can move the puck and shoot the puck,” Renney said. “That’s certainly not out of the question to see him perform in that area when he gets back in the lineup.”
