Some of the greatest plays of Alex Ovechkin‘s career have come when he’s not even on his skates. There was The Goal, when he scored on the Coyotes while doing a barrel roll in the slot. Then there was that one time he almost scored against the Rangers while sitting on his bum.
Against the Lightning on Saturday, Ovechkin passed the puck to himself and got a semi-breakaway. He fell over, but that’s no reason not to get a shot on goal.
This is incredible.
Marcus Johansson then knocked the rebound home for his third (!) even-strength goal of the season and his fourth overall. It was Washington’s first goal of the night.
