In the second period, Caps defenseman Brooks Orpik was injured after absorbing a painful body check from Flyers forward Ryan White. While Orpik left the game due to injury, this hit will further his legendary toughness– partly because of an image tweeted by @PhillyGirl1437.

The impact of the hit made this metal concession panel fall off.
The fact that Orpik even got up under his own power is amazing. He’s a gamer.
