Orlov scored a goal on two shots with two PIM and two shots in Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to Buffalo. Orlov threw a soft shot toward the net in the latter stages of the third period and it ricocheted off the skate of a Buffalo defender and past goalie Linus Ullmark, tying the game at 2-2. It was Orlov's first goal since Dec. 21, snapping his personal 31-game drought. The 28-year-old, who logged a team-leading 26:40 of ice time Monday, has 27 points in 69 games on the season.

Overall, Orlov has three goals and 26 points with a plus-5 rating in 63 games this season.
Orlov notched two assists in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Islanders. The veteran blueliner recorded his first multi-point effort since Dec. 21.

Orlov scored the game-winning goal and added a shorthanded assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Lightning. Orlov is actually on a pace that could see him flirt with 40 points for the first time in his career. He doesn't produce much on special teams, but does contribute enough hits and SOG to warrant slotting Orlov into the bottom spot on your blue line.
