The Tampa Bay Lightning scored a garbage goal with three seconds left in the game to make it 4-3. Jon Cooper called time out. The Lightning kept their net empty. That wasn’t wise.
Nicklas Backstrom won the face-off, which Alex Ovechkin immediately shot into the net with under a half second left.
Anton Stralman is skating backwards forever, infinitely sad.
Two-goal night for Ovi, his fourteenth goal on the year. He opened and closed this one.
Elias Sports Bureau: Ovechkin’s span of 3559 seconds between goals was longest in NHL since Michael Handzus on 1/23/2002. #Caps
