Capitals' Orlov sustains broken arm at Worlds
Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov will miss the remainder of the IIHF World Championship with a broken arm.

Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov will miss the remainder of the IIHF World Championship with a broken arm. The injury occurred during the second period of Russia's 6-1 win against the United States on Monday.

"My arm is broken and I can't turn it, so there is no point in suffering and trying to play. I'd only be a burden to my team," Orlov said after Russia practiced Tuesday at Minsk Arena in Belarus. "I have contacted the Washington Capitals and will be going to America, where I will see a doctor in Washington or New York."

Orlov is the only defenseman on Russia's World Championship roster who is signed with an NHL team. In three tournaments games, he had one assist and a plus-3 rating. In 54 games with Washington this season, Orlov had three goals and 11 points.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
