24-year-old Dmitry Orlov just scored one of the biggest goals of his young career and it was nasty. I’m glad kids are in bed because I uttered some terrible, awful, happy things at my TV after Orly dented the twine. It was just one of those goals.

The play begins, naturally, by a fantastic carry-in by Evgeny Kuznetsov. Kuznetsov then drops a pass to Justin Williams who then drops a pass to Orlov. We’ve got double drop passes, people! It’s hockey inception.
Orlov performs some black magic with the puck, weaving through multiple Kings defenders before depositing a beautiful backhanded shot past Jonathan Quick. SCOARLOV!
This is just RE-DIC-U-LOUS.
The tally completed the Caps improbable comeback after falling behind three goals to one of the league’s best possession teams.
That also was Dmitry Orlov’s eighth goal of the season and his first tally on the road. It could not have come at a better time.
Thank you for the loser point, Orly.
Orlov just made the Kings look like practice pylons.
