What Brooks Laich’s Injury Means for the Capitals, No GQ Magazine Call for Orlov

The Capitals lost 4-1 to the Boston Bruins Sunday, and they also lost a key piece when center Brooks Laich went to the locker room game with an undisclosed injury that kept him out for the rest of the game (it looked to be either knee or ankle).

In addition, despite actually outshooting the Bruins, the Capitals couldn’t solve the enigma of Tim Thomas in net.

“Tim Thomas won a Stanley Cup playing like that last year,” said OFB TV guest Ed Frankovic.

Watch Frankovic, Ted Starkey, and yours truly discuss what adjustments the Capitals will have to consider if Laich is out of the lineup for an extended period of time and also Dmitry Orlov’s bad puck luck.
