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.
The Washington Capitals had their second straight matinee on Sunday, this time taking on the Philadelphia Flyers. And on Washington’s first goal of the game, they got a SCOARLOV.
