The Washington Capitals had their second straight matinee on Sunday, this time taking on the Philadelphia Flyers. And on Washington’s first goal of the game, they got a SCOARLOV.

As the Caps controlled the forecheck in the offensive zone, Wayne Simmonds completely left his man, Dmitry Orlov.
Orlov, noticing that he had the most wide open lane to the net in the history of hockey, raised his stick to Troy Brouwer, who controlled the puck behind the net.
Orlov then skated towards the left circle and perfectly one-timed Brouwer’s pass to the top right corner of the net.
These are the types of plays Orlov must start to make more and more as he gets experience. He has the ability to be a transformative player on the ice with his offensive ability.
Moar shots = moar goals. Way to go, Orly.
