So, your overtime hero in the second game is none other than the 38-year-old Stanley Cup champion. Brooks Orpik.
What a journey. All right, let's go.
No wait, one second. Hahahahaha. Orpik!
Guy scored two goals this season, was bought last summer, plays 25% less than before and beats the Hurricanes in overtime with a superb shot. Hahaha.
Ok, for real now.
Wait, no One last thing: Orpik also scored the game-winning goal in the third game of last year's final. What an incredible player.
Ok, no, here is what really happened. Evgeny Kuznetsov is behind the Canes net, just as Orpik arrives on the ice. Orpik rushes to the face-off point with all the speed that he could muster. The pass was perfect, but the 44th shot of the season was even better.

Orpik, who is still a two-time Stanley Cup champion at press time, was immediately attacked with hugs.
HOME RUN BROOKS ORPIK. TURN THE BASES, YOUNG MAN.
