Defenseman Brooks Orpik will be a game-time decision with a lower-body injury. He is one of four Capitals defensemen to have played in all 67 games this season, along with John Carlson, Karl Alzner and Matt Niskanen. Washington is the only team in the NHL with at least four defensemen that have appeared in every game.
