Orlov losing an edge? He turns his skates and stops, plain and simple, because he’s afraid of getting hit on the other side by the other forechecker. Basically the NHL just ruled you can’t follow someone in on the forecheck because if they stop, you’ll be given a major penalty for any resulting contact made and probably suspended.
