Love the way the announcers built up the intensity as they lined up...
Very smart fight by Orr to lock-up King's right arm and not very smart fight by King - to not even make an attempt to get loose !
Over all...a cerebral Win for Orr. Give King a 'C minus' for effort.
King hasn't won a fight this year yet !
Caps were better off with Brashear back in the days...
Unfortunately, the pre-fight yap was better than the fight. Sadly, the Caps won the draw, and King had to use his stellar offensive skills by skating in a half circle to back up the centerman- I guess. Orr gets a grip on the elbow which is far superior to a grip around the shoulder. But then in mid-fight he is able to grab the midsection of Kings sweater while keeping the elbow grip. King has nowhere to go. He can't throw a right, and he is in Orr's range. Domi used to do a thing where he would get the sweater over the opponents head and take all the slack out of the sweat and render their arms useless. Orr's move was nearly as effective. I suggest that King should get some dish soap and rub it on strategic part of his sweater and then remember not to rub his eyes with the effected parts. King did land one pretty good shot, but its a win for Orr.
Considering these guys are 2 heavy handed men this could be viewed as a disappointment.....It still wasn't a bad fight ala 5 rateing!!! I am really likeing some of the reviews about techniques !!!! Although I don't believe Orr refused I think King did... cause orr slap his stick away and King was backing up!!! I agree he got a great grip!!!
Something is wrong with King and WTF was Orr doing watching himself Ala Probie winking at his boys in the middle of his fights!!!! Complete Control!!!!!
unfortunately king just couldn't get anything going. orr takes this easily, although not much damage resulted. two monsters like this you'd expect a doozy, but no one opens up anymore, i'm calling it a disappointing 4.
Once again Orr had the opportunity to drop his gloves off the face off but decided he needed to jump King again. Orr controlled the fight (getting the jump on King helped), got in more shots, but King with the only solid blow. Win Orr.
For the King haters, this was his 3rd fight of the season. Last year I think he had 8 compared to Orr who was in the high 20's, he will improve.
