Saturday night in Boston, Dmitry Orlov welcomed recent call-up Noel Acciari to the NHL. Late in the third period, the 24-year-old Bruins forward tried to dump the puck into the Capitals zone and skate by Orlov. Orly had other plans however, stepping up and leveling Acciari.
The poor linesman, who was perched on top of the dasher boards, got deposited into the Caps bench and a player’s lap. Though I’m guessing there are worse things.
Here’s the video.
And the GIFs.
Orlov has 14 hits in his last six games including several big bodychecks in the neutral zone. But his defensive pairing with Brooks Orpik has struggled.
