No Replacement for Colton Orr!

Interesting and maybe unique casus took place during last night Rangers vs. Penguins game. Starting the third period Ranger Colton Orr was given 5 minutes boarding penalty plus match penalty . He was rejected from ice but somehow Rangers and 4 officials (!) have forgotten to send replacement player to the penalty box. So when the penalty was expired no one could step out to help penalty killers and Rangers continued to play shorthanded until the next game stop. NYR managed to kill this penalty as 8 others as well but lost the game 3:4 anyway thanks to Sidney Crosby’s excellent breakaway goal.
