In the first period, Dmitry Orlov scored his first goal since December 15th. In the second period, Dima got another. O RLY?
The SCOARLOV only happened though because of a heads up play (or maybe a life-saving decision) by Jason Chimera. The Ice Cheetah, laying helpless in the slot after being mauled (see what I did there?) by a Flyers player, lifted his legs up ice so Orly’s shot could hit the net.
It certainly did.
Sadly Chimera didn’t get credit for a helper on this, even though, let’s be honest, this type of play is what secondary assists were invented for.
This is Orlov’s first career two-goal game in the NHL. All three of his goals this season have come against the Philadelphia Flyers.
