Brooks Orpik of the Washington Capitals may be in some hot water following a late hit delivered to Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta early in Saturday's Game 2.

Maatta was helped off the ice and sent to the locker room for examination, while Orpik was assessed a two-minute penalty for interference. The Penguin did not return for the second period.

The incident is likely worthy of another look, this time from the NHL's Department of Player Safety.
