Islanders Fan Throws Beer at Brooks Orpik (Video)
The Washington Capitals defeated the New York Islanders 2-1 in overtime on Tuesday. They ended it with a Nicklas Backstrom goal 11:09 into the extra frame, which tied the best-of-seven series at 2-2 and sent the Islanders fans home angry. But before exiting the Nassau Coliseum, at least one of those disgruntled fans decided to throw his beer at Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik.
Check it out:
It was a rough game for Orpik, who was also on the receiving end of a skate to the face from teammate John Carlson in the first period:
But he was able to return from that, so I doubt a bit of beer on his jersey is gonna bother him.
