The Los Angeles Kings had nearly blown the three goal lead they had earned over the very dangerous Washington Capitals on Wednesday night, and then Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov stepped up and made sure they did.

After receiving a pass from teammate Justin Williams, Orlov opted not to fire from the point, but instead showed off some serious skill as he dangled past one King's player and left two others frozen before using a laser sharp backhand to tie the game at three a piece.

Unfortunately in the end Orlov's effort wasn't enough to give the Capitals the win as the fell 4-3 in overtime, but it was a tremendous effort nonetheless, and a beautiful goal worthy of being highlighted.
