Orpik was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit.

The hit prompted Rangers coach John Tortorella to call out the Penguins after the game, calling the hit “cheap and “dirty.” From there, he called Pittsburgh an “arrogant organization” and referred to Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby as “whining” stars. He was fined $20,000 for those comments.
