Orr, Brashear suspended following fight-filled game

Tuesday, 08.16.2011 / 5:39 AM

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -The NHL suspended Rangers forward Colton Orr for five games and Washington enforcer Donald Brashear for one on Sunday following New York's fight-filled victory over the Capitals.

Orr received his ban for a cross-checking blow to the head of Washington forward Alex Ovechkin with 4:20 left in the Rangers' 4-1 victory on Saturday night.

"The Rangers player's actions with his stick were reckless and dangerous," NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell said in a statement. "Although no injury resulted, the action is unacceptable."

Orr, who has no points and 60 penalty minutes in 25 games this season, will lose $13,235.29 in salary. He will be eligible to return for New York's home game against Boston on Jan. 13.

Brashear was given a match penalty for punching Rangers defenseman Aaron Ward at 7:39 of the final period as the Capitals forward skated off right after he fought Brendan Shanahan.

It is the second suspension given this season to Brashear, who missed three earlier games after a Nov. 22 fight with Atlanta's Vitaly Vishnevski.

Brashear, who has three assists and 97 penalty minutes in 35 games this season, will sit out Washington's home game against Phoenix on Monday and lose $12,195.12.
