Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov had a great start to the first period. He tallied a secondary assist on Mike Green’s power play goal and had a few good scoring chances.
But I wanna focus on another first period play. It was Orlov’s feistiness after the whistle, which may or may not have been dirty.
CSN didn’t show the scrum live, so Hana dug it out from the Rangers feed.
Orlov connected with a cross-check to the helmet-protected noggin’ of Mats Zuccarello. Zuccarello then slashed Dima in the skates and gave him a super punch to the chest. The refs sent them both to the box for two minutes because hockey.
And thus: Two Russians, one box.
Is paяty now in the caps penalty box
