Dmitry Orlov has a whale of a shot, and Saturday night, he scoarlov’d top shelf on Wild goaltender Alex Stalock.
One-minute and thirty-two seconds into the third period, Oilers forward Jujhar Khaira finally got a shot past Braden Holtby, giving the Oilers a 1-0 third period lead.
3:42 later, after Dmitry Orlov and Tom Wilson connected on a stunning give-and-go, the Caps tied.
Orlov was kind of excited.
The Washington Capitals and Columbus Blue Jackets entered Thursday night’s game in a fierce battle for first place in the Metropolitan Division and the NHL.
The Blue Jackets struck first, but it was Dmitry Orlov, on Russian Heritage Night, who played the hero, forcing overtime for the Capitals.
1:19 into the third period, the Flyers took a 1-0 lead after Sean Couturier deflected Matt Read’s wrist shot past Braden Holtby. 1:21 later, Dmitry Orlov answered and wrestled back the momentum for the Capitals.
After forcing a turnover in the neutral zone, Orlov skated into the Flyers zone and unleashed a hailmary slapshot from the middle of the ice.
The goal was Orlov’s fifth scoarlov of the year.
Dmitry Orlov, Russia’s Andre Burakovsky as we call him, has two goals so far on Mondayn night. First, he released a monster of a shot during a first period power play, then he finished off a nice sequence by the excellent third line.
Everything’s coming up Orlov.
Dmitry Orlov has joined TJ Oshie and Nicklas Backstrom in the invite-only Goals Party at Verizon Center.
The Russian defenseman’s tally was the Novokuznetsk’s first of the season. It gave the Caps an emphatic 4-0 lead over rival Pittsburgh.
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 Capitals didn’t deserve to win Monday’s game against the Oilers, but Dmitry Orlov‘s railgun of a slapshot in the final seven minutes gave them the win anyway.
Look at this. Yer gonna love it.
When Dmitry Orlov scored his first NHL goal four years ago, Peter blurted out something brilliant on the RMNB account. To this day, I still don’t know how he thought of it.
SCOARlov! First NHL Goal!!!

Since then, Orly doesn’t score mere goals. He SCOARLOVs. On Saturday night, we got our first Orly goal in nearly two years. There was no guarantee we’d see that after a badly broken wrist in the World Championship threatened Orlov’s career. Our new t-shirt commemorates that perseverance and welcomes the many scoarlovs yet to come.
Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov just scored his first goal since March 2, 2014 and his first goal since missing all of last season due to a broken wrist.
The tally was ridiculous.
