Brooks Orpik has played 798 games regular season games in the NHL. On Saturday night, he won the game for the Washington Capitals with just his second goal for the team. After the game, a reporter asked him if he could remember that last time he scored a goal-winning goal. A blank look came over his face.
“No,” he said.
That might be because he never has scored a game-winning goal — at least in the NHL.
