The Washington Capitals had their first stinker in awhile, falling to the New York Islanders 3-1. But the Caps, winners of eight of their last 10 games, had at least one thing to be positive about: Dmitry Orlov is now on a four-game scoring streak.
The Russian defenseman scored on a beautiful two-on-one with Chandler Stephenson in the third period

The goal was Orly’s third Scorly of the season. The play was made possible by a fantastic breakout pass by Devante Smith-Pelly from behind the team’s net.
Orlov shot the puck so hard, initially it was difficult to realize the biscuit went in.
After beginning the season slow on the scoresheet, Orlov now has nine points in his last 13 games – including three goals.
Dmitry Orlov scores the Capitals' first goal of the game. That's his fourth-straight game with a point (1g, 3a).
