Orlov will join Russia at the 2021 IIHF World Championships, Martin Merk of IIHF.com reports. Orlov will join teammate Ilya Samsonov in the World Championships following a disappointing first-round exit at the hands of the Bruins. The 29-year-old posted three assists in five postseason games and was a strong presence on the Capitals' top pairing despite the loss.
Orlov recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 5. Orlov helped out on a Conor Sheary goal just 11 seconds into the third period. The 29-year-old Orlov provided three helpers with eight hits, nine blocked shots and 12 shots on net through five playoff outings.
Orlov registered two assists and two shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to Boston in Game 2. Orlov figured in on a pair of Garnet Hathaway goals, including a perfect feed on a 2-on-1 rush to set up Hathaway's game-tying strike in the third period. The 29-year-old Orlov is coming off of an eight-goal, 14-assist regular season in 51 games. He also provided 20 PIM and a plus-14 rating.
Orlov provided a goal and an assist with four shots and three hits in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Penguins. Orlov squared the game at 2-2 with a point blast midway through the second period, then he picked up an assist on Daniel Sprong's go-ahead tally just over six minutes later. The 29-year-old defenseman, who produced just one point in his first 16 games, has put together an excellent April with four goals and seven assists in 15 contests.
Orlov delivered a power-play assist to contrast his minus-3 rating in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Bruins. Orlov logged a season high in ice time (27:30) which left him a bit vulnerable defensively, but more important to fantasy managers is that he extended his point streak to five games with the apple -- his first special teams point this season.
