On a night the Washington Capitals were missing a number of key players due to injury, and captain Alex Ovechkin placed himself atop yet another NHL record book, the team also saw defenseman Dmitry Orlov leave the game early due to injury.

The Capitals announced that Orlov is questionable to return to the game against the Arizona Coyotes with a lower-body injury.

Orlov skated a total of 7:02 in the first period on seven shifts, recording one shot on net before departing. It is not clear on what play Orlov was injured.
