When it was Brooks Orpik‘s turn in the media scrum for his exit interview, he talked about the slash he took from Eric Haula in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. It was a slash that resulted in 15 stitches on his left pinkie finger

Orpik revealed that the tip of his finger came off from that slash but gave the trainers credit to helping him through it and finish off the series. That wasn’t the only injury he played through. He played through a bad hand that he injured in Game 2 of the first round against the Blue Jackets.

Orpik said he will get his hand checked out on Friday and will find out at that time if his hand needs to be fixed.

Orpik goes into more detail about the injury in this video below:

Hockey players are tough. Orpik scored the game-winning goal in that Game 2 to give the Capitals their first Stanley Cup Finals game victory. In the process, it helped change the course of the series as the Capitals won the next three games after that to capture their first Stanley Cup. And that little pinky injury didn’t stop Orpik from chugging beer like a champ.
