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.”
