Back to Orpik, he played a great game. His pass to Dupuis was as nice as the goal.

He may not be a frequent visitor to this spot, but the veteran defenseman went beyond his comfort zone Tuesday night and accomplished a career first during Pittsburgh's 3-2 overtime win against intrastate rival Philadelphia. In his previous 300 career games, the San Francisco native never had paired a goal and assist in the same game, but the defensive-minded Orpik got a little offensive against the Flyers by scoring a goal – the team's first of the night at 14:12 of the first period on a power play, no less – and provided the primary assist on Pascal Dupuis' game-winner with just more than 10 seconds remaining in sudden death. In addition to his first one-goal, one-assist contest, Orpik blocked three shots and delivered four hits during a team-high 25:07 of ice time.
