The Washington Times - January 15, 2012, 08:53PM

Thanks to Yahoo Sports’ Dmitry Chesnokov interpreting, here’s the transcript of reporters speaking with Dmitry Orlov after the Washington Capitals defenseman scored his first career NHL goal on Sunday evening:

Your emotions after goal?


Orlov: “I only have positive emotions. Of course I was a little bit lucky on that goal, but I’m happy it went in. I’m also happy this was a game-winning goal because we, as a team, won. We need to get the points, especially in the tight and difficult games like this. So obviously the emotions are very positive.”

Finally after so many chances?

“I was a little worried about it, sort of anxious. I was waiting for this moment to come, and it finally came today. I’m just extremely happy that it happened today, that I finally scored my first NHL goal.”

What happened on goal?

“We were skating three-on-two and I was expecting a pass. But at the same time [Jason Chimera] sort of chipped the puck over and I was waiting for a rebound. And it wasn’t a rebound. The puck landed in my skate and on my stick and I just shot the puck off of the guy’s back. It was a very weird angle; it felt like I was almost behind the net when it happened. This is the way it played out.”
