Brooks Orpik to Travel With Caps, Not Expected to Play in Game 6

Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik will travel with the team to Philadelphia, but don't expect him to play in Game 6 against the Flyers on Sunday afternoon.

Sidelined with an upper-body injury suffered in Game 3, when Flyers forward Ryan White checked him into the glass at the Wells Fargo Center, Orpik has begun working out but has not yet skated with the team.

"It's very encouraging," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. "As a matter of fact, I just talked to him. He's feeling much better. He had a little workout today. We just go through the process."
