Sideshow: Orr vs Cote
Well as I anticipated yesterday, Orr and Cote decided to drop the gloves yesterday afternoon in Philly. Orr has had Cote's number over the past two seasons and for the first 20 seconds or so of this fight it looked like Cote was changing that, but Orr was able to regain his composure and land some absolute bombs. Riley Cote must have a head of steel because as evidenced by some famous previous TKOs and KOs, Orr has one of the hardest punches in the NHL. In my opinion Cote definitely went for the takedown at the end, but props to him for getting back up after he was dropped to his knee. What can I say about Orr? He's my favorite player in the NHL for a reason - he's entertaining, he does his job and he's damn good at doing both!
Rangers play the Flyers again today at 12:30pm on NBC - let's hope these two decide to go again! And, unlike last time these two teams played on NBC, let's hope the NHL doesn't stop Cote & Orr from doing what they do best! [Link]
