Warning: This post could be upsetting for some.
There was a scary moment late in the first period. Caps defenseman Brooks Orpik took an errant John Carlson skate blade to the face after Carlson fell down in the slot. Carlson’s left skate blade appeared to strike Orpik in the right cheek and mouth area. Orpik left the ice under his own power, running straight down the tunnel for the Caps locker room.
The Capitals reported that Orpik would return for the second period, and return he has… with gross stiches on his face.
