from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Marian Gaborik, who did not accompany the Rangers here after being diagnosed with a concussion on Sunday, will be examined by a specialist in Manhattan at 5 p.m. Tuesday.
While the Rangers remain uncertain exactly how the winger suffered the injury, The Post has learned that Gaborik has told teammates and management he believed it occurred a week ago Sunday, Feb. 13, during the Blueshirts’ match at the Garden against Pittsburgh on a hit from Brooks Orpik.
The official game sheet has two Orpik hits on Gaborik recorded, one at 14:45 of the second period and the other 1:42 into the third. Gaborik took a hard hit 5:29 into that match from Tim Wallace that drew a response from Brandon Prust.
