Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Orr vs. King – 12/6/1
For a moment during last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs, it appeared as though Alex Ovechkin was looking to start something with Leafs enforcer Colton Orr. However, D.J. King would end up stepping in for Ovechkin on this occasion, as he took care of the fighting and left the scoring to the Caps’ superstar.
After watching his teammate take on Orr in a spirited bout, Ovechkin repaid King by burying a wicked wrister past Jonas Gustavsson. And immediately after celebrating the goal with his teammates on the ice, Ovi skated by the penalty box and gave King a gratuitous tap on the glass with his stick.
Orr did manage to win the fight, and the Leafs would end up winning the game, but King’s courage and effort does earn him a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, December 6, 2010.
