First the news, and it’s not much. Marian Gaborik is going to see a neurologist today.
ANOTHER GABORIK UPDATE:
According to Larry Brooks on twitter, Gaborik believes concussion came from Brooks Orpik hit (Feb. 13 game).
This from Andrew Gross’ Ranger Rants blog:
“The timeline, per coach John Tortorella, is this:
Last Tuesday, Gaborik said he wasn’t feeling right. At the time, the team and Gaborik thought he might have the flu.
– Thursday, Gaborik played against the Kings without symptoms.
– Friday, Gaborik plays against the Devils without symptoms, though he’s held without a shot for the first time this season.
– Sunday, Gaborik plays 4:39 with one shot in the first period. Tortorella wants to show him some video during the first intermission. At that time, Gaborik tells Tortorella he’s having trouble concentrating, so Tortorella sends him right to trainer Jim Ramsey and the decision is made to shut Gaborik down.”
