Godard Solves Orr
Eric Godard‘s struggles against Colton Orr are well-documented. After Wednesday, Godard’s problems are no more. The Penguins’ tough guy once again took on Orr right off of the opening faceoff of the latest meeting between the Rangers and Penguins. After a wild toe-to-toe exchange, Godard sent Orr to his knees with a hard right hand, prompting the linesmen to quickly intervene.
Last night’s only other bout was another heavyweight attraction between Matt Walker and George Parros in Blackhawks-Ducks. If the matchup looks familiar, it’s because it is. The two have fought five times in the last four seasons.
