The Capitals didn’t deserve to win Monday’s game against the Oilers, but Dmitry Orlov‘s railgun of a slapshot in the final seven minutes gave them the win anyway.
Look at this. Yer gonna love it.
The game-winning goal started on what seemed like a half hour of forechecking by the team’s fourth line. First, Brooks Laich hit Tom Wilson with a backhand pass along the boards. Wilson blindly centered the puck to Michael Latta, streaking to the net. Latta was unable to get a stick on the puck, but that’s a-okay because Orlov jumped into the play, pumped his stick, and wham! SCOARLOV!
That is Orlov’s second goal of the season and his second goal in as many games. It’s also his first game-winning goal of the year and the second of his career (1/15/12 vs. CAR).
Also I love this dude in the RMNB shirt.
Orlov after the game said of the goal, “Nothing crazy, nothing fancy.”
