So much happened Tuesday night during the Caps/Sharks game that it was impossible to cover it all. Liam O’Brien tallied his first NHL point, the Caps came back like two different times from an impossible deficit, and terrible hockey player John Scott summoned the power of Thor to lower the boom and score his first goal since dinosaurs roamed the earth.
There was another play I loved that I didn’t get to cover. DID YOU SEE THAT ‘AND ONE’ MOVE OVI PUT ON LOGAN COUTURE??? OMGGGGGG.
It looks simple, but it’s not. Alex Ovechkin, skating at full speed, deftly puts the puck through the legs of hard-charging Couture, then raises his left skate to avoid getting clipped.
This is why Ovechkin’s so dangerous in open ice. This is why he has a franchise-leading 15 career OT goals. He can do insane things like this that not many others can do.
