Boston Bruins defensemen Dmitry Orlov (back) and Charlie McAvoy (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against the Flyers. Hampus Lindholm and Brandon Carlo will form the first defensive pairing in the game, with Matt Grzelcyk and Connor Carrick part of the second pairing. Both players are likely just getting rested, with the playoffs scheduled to start on April 17 and the Bruins having already secured home-ice advantage for the postseason. McAvoy also already had an injury scare earlier in the week, so there's no need to risk players' health in a meaningless game. Forwards Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci and Taylor Hall are also out Sunday.
Boston Bruins defenseman Dmitry Orlov recorded his second consecutive three point game in Thursday's 7-1 victory against the Sabres. The 31-year-old scored a power play goal in the second period to open the scoring for the Bruins, followed by a pair of assists on goals scored by forwards Jakub Lauko and Patrice Bergeron. Orlov has benefited greatly from the trade to the league-leading Bruins, with totals of three goals and eight points through four games with his new club. The veteran defenseman should be added across all formats if he is still available as a result of the three consecutive multi-point games.
The Washington Capitals traded Dmitry Orlov to the Boston Bruins on Thursday, along with forward Garnet Hathaway. In return, Washington received Craig Smith, a 2023 first-round pick, a 2024 third-round pick and a 2025 second-round pick. The deal also involved the Minnesota Wild, who will retain 50 percent of Orlov's salary for a 2023 fifth-round pick. This is quite a statement from the Bruins, but Orlov's move to Boston will hurt his fantasy value, as he will play a lesser role after averaging a career-high 22:43 of ice time this season In Washington. He has recorded 19 points in 48 games for the year with 77 shots, 88 hits and 62 blocks. Garnet Hathaway, who is eighth in the league with 198 hits, will beef up the Bruins' fourth line.
Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov was finally able to continue his season on Sunday, returning from a 16-game absence with two assists in a 5-2 win over Winnipeg. The Russian blue-liner hadn't played since Nov. 5 due to a lower-body injury. He logged 21:29 of ice time in his comeback game and picked up the helpers on Washington's final two goals, which were scored by Lars Eller and Alex Ovechkin. Orlov had three shots of his own in the contest and registered two blocks and one hit while finishing with an even rating. The 31-year-old now sits on seven points for the season, which have all come via assists. In 14 games played, Orlov has also tallied 29 shots, 31 hits and 18 blocks with a plus-three rating.
