Brooks Orpik takes accidental kick to the groin (Video)

Washington Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik was taken down by an accidental kick to the groin during Friday night's NHL game against Carolina.

It happened in the final minute of regulation with the score tied at 3. Orpik was defending Hurricanes forward Brock McGinn in front of the Capitals net. Orpik pushed McGinn in the back, and as McGinn fell forward, his leg came straight up and caught Orpik in the crotch.

Orpik skated off under his own power, although he was doubled over as he headed back to the bench.

The Capitals beat the Hurricanes 4-3.
