Hit on Maatta, late shoves put Caps' Orpik under microscope

WASHINGTON (AP) During their back-to-back Stanley Cup final runs in 2008 and 2009, the Pittsburgh Penguins knew all about what Brooks Orpik can do. The rugged, bruising defenseman's ability to play on the edge was a big part of the Penguins' playoff success for a long time.

With Orpik on the other side of its series with the Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh was on the receiving end of Orpik's borderline play in Game 2. Not only did Orpik knock defenseman Olli Maatta out with a late hit to the head, but he wasn't afraid to shove Kris Letang in the face after the whistle.

Asked if Orpik plays any differently with Washington than he did with Pittsburgh, Letang said, "Uh, no."
