This probably wasn't the most well advised hit from Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov.

During Game 4 of the second round series between the Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins, Orlov delivered a big hit to Penguins forward Carl Hagelin sending him crashing into Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby.

Hagelin had just left the penalty box, and after beating a Capitals defender for the puck, was breaking towards the Capitals net for a scoring chance. Unfortunately for Hagelin, Orlov's hit set him sailing through the air, before landing awkwardly on his head and against the post.

Thankfully everyone seemed to be relatively alright after the collision.
