Orlov Scores Late, Caps Beat Hurricanes For 9th Win In 11
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Dmitry Orlov scored on a power play with 2:55 remaining, and the Washington Capitals recovered after blowing a two-goal lead to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Sunday.
Alex Ovechkin and Aliaksei Protas scored 59 seconds apart in the second period for the Capitals, who’ve won nine of their last 11 games (9-1-1). John Carlson added an empty-netter after Orlov’s goal put Washington ahead to stay.READ MORE: Anne Arundel County Police Officer Involved In A Shooting In Glen Burnie
Ilya Samsonov stopped 30 shots for Washington, while Carolina’s Frederik Andersen made 21 saves.
The teams combined for 28 shots without scoring until Ovechkin took a pass from Orlov and delivered the puck past Andersen for his 19th goal of the season. Ovechkin has 44 goals in 82 games against the Hurricanes.
Protas had some good fortune for his first career goal. His pass went off Carolina defenseman Tony DeAngelo’s skate, with the puck bouncing into the net. The 20-year-old Protas was playing in his 11th NHL game.
It was Carolina’s first home game in more than two weeks. The Hurricanes went 4-1-1 on a six-game road swing.READ MORE: COVID-19 In Maryland: Positivity Rate Reaches 4.5%
