Varvara Orlova took to her Instagram on Monday to share the newborn photos of baby Kirill.
Kirill is Dmitry and Varvara’s first child together. He was born in late June.
Capitals fan Charlie is no stranger to creating intricate Capitals inspired artwork on pumpkin to celebrate the spooky season. And, with the three-year anniversary of Dmitry Orlov’s hipcheck on Matt Duchene happening earlier in October, they decided to immortalize the moment in pumpkin.
While we’ve been a fan of their previous designs, this one might be our favorite yet!
On the same day we celebrate the first all-female spacewalk, we honor the anniversary of another historic flight: three years ago today, Dmitry Orlov sent Matt Duchene into orbit with an unbelievable hipcheck.
Despite a rough landing
in Ottawa on the ice, Duchene was fine, so we can enjoy watching this hard-hit over and over and over and over again.
The Washington Capitals lost to the Colorado Avalanche 6-3 on Monday, but it was a special game for two Caps dads in particular.

ARLINGTON, VA — The best day of the Washington Capitals season, in this author’s humble opinion, occurred Monday when Caps players participated in its annual dog calendar photoshoot. Partnering with Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, the boys spent the afternoon posing (and hugging and cuddling) with dogs up for adoption as well as their own pups from home. This year, the Capitals modeled in front of vintage cars or their own vehicles.
While the Homeward Trail dogs stole everyone’s heart (please return it soon please, I’m having trouble functioning), the day started out with an appearance by the Capitals new dog, Captain.
Captain posed in a vintage silver car and wore silly hats, loving the attention he got throughout.
Meanwhile, Capitals players John Carlson, Nic Dowd, TJ Oshie, Alex Ovechkin, Chandler Stephenson, Garnet Hathaway, and Nick Jensen all posed with their own dogs. Tom Wilson, Nicklas Backstrom, Lars Eller, Tyler Lewington, Jakub Vrana, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, Michal Kempny, Radko Gudas, Carl Hagelin, Richard Panik, Jonas Siegenthaler, Brendan Leipsic, and Ilya Samsonov took their photos with dogs available for adoption through Homeward Trails.
Since the calendar began in 2014, the Caps have raised more than $250,000 for Homeward Trails. A limited number of calendars will be available for $20 beginning Nov. 27 when the Capitals host the Florida Panthers. The calendar will also be sold online and in the team stores at Capital One Arena and MedStar Capitals Iceplex. Details will be announced at a later date.
While the official photos won’t be seen until the release, we hope these adorable photos will tide you over until then.
The DC United defeated the Seattle Sounders 2-0 in front of a raucous crowd at Audi Field, Sunday night. And by raucous I mean, many members of the Washington Capitals were there to cheer on their favorite MLS team.
Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was joined by Evgeny Kuznetsov, Jakub Vrana, Dmitry Orlov, Ilya Samsonov, Vitek Vanecek, and Alex Alexeyev in field-side seats to root on the United and help #UniteTheDsistrict ahead of the soccer team’s playoff push.
The best part was Ovi had another encounter with soccer legend Wayne Rooney after the game.
Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin turned 34 years-old on Tuesday but celebrated his birthday with his family, friends, and teammates the very next night.
Ovechkin had a large private dinner after the Capitals defeated the St. Louis Blues 3-2 in a very nice win at Capital One Arena. Ovechkin and his wife Nastya posted videos to their Instagram Story of the moment when Ovi was given a birthday cake. He smiled sheepishly as everyone sang him Happy Birthday in Russian.
Ovechkin attended the game with fellow Russian and Capital Dmitry Orlov, as well as his wife, Nastya. The group sat in luxury box seats.
