He got a workout, with three overtime games on the week.  On Sunday, Orion stopped 31 of 32 shots as the Galaxy knocked off Hamilton, 3-1.  The next night, Orion made 33 saves and Washington toppled New York in overtime, 4-3.

“Roger usually doesn’t get talked about among the elite goaltenders in the league, but I think he belongs in that conversation,” said Galaxy coach Rodney Reagle.  “I’d stack him up against anyone else in the league, and I look forward to the playoffs when we can prove it.”
