A look at a rough start for one of the team's "top" defensemen

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

4.08 - The goals-against per 60 rate for Brooks Orpik through 11 games, tied for third-highest in the League (and tops among blueliners not playing for the Calgary Flames).

Orpik has been on the ice for 14 of the team's 28 total goals-against this year, with 13 of those goals being scored at even strength - including four of the five scored by New York last night. That's the most of any Caps' defensemen, both at even strength and overall.
