Big bopper Brooks Orpik had the hit of the game in the second period, erasing Curtis Lazar into the glass. The Senators forward thought he could chip the forward past the 36-year-old defenseman. Instead he ate a fiberglass sandwich.

Despite the hit being clean, Chris Neil tried to fight Orpik, until Tom Wilson saved the day.
