Fireworks Tonight?

James Mirtle at the Toronto Globe & Mail talks about the potential fireworks during tonight's game against the Maple Leafs including the much anticipated Derek Boogaard vs. Colton Orr bout...

"Meanwhile, there’s pressure on Boogaard to have his first fight as a Ranger after he signed a highly criticized four-year, $6.5-million deal in the summer. There could be fireworks in Thursday’s game after Rangers sniper Marian Gaborik was injured on a hit by Colby Armstrong, and pest Sean Avery delivered two ugly slashes to the back of Mike Komisarek’s legs."

...between Orr's slight concussion, Boogaard's lack of ice time and the Rangers just trying to find a way to win a game we might not see any fireworks tonight.

...having said that, i'm still hoping that there is. As I mentioned during the live chat last night, I completely agree with reader Chris Jones who yesterday said "
Sometimes you need to be willing to lose a game in order to set up future wins."
