Report- Gaborik May Have A Concussion

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.

Is it me or are the Penguins involved with every fingernail break around this league over the past few weeks.
