The Washington Capitals dominated the Columbus Blue Jackets in the game’s opening minutes before coming up short in overtime. The Caps authored 12 of the game’s first 13 shots, including a sweet Eric Fehr deflection goal on the power play.
Except I kinda think Alex Ovechkin touched it last.
As Fehr deflects Carlson’s shot off the blade of his stick, the puck spins end-over-end. Then it goes by Ovechkin’s stick and appears to change directions ever so slightly. The puck gets its third deflection off Bobrovsky’s stick before going high into the net.
It’s hard to see, but I think this is Ovi’s 15th of the year. The scoresheet still says it’s Eric Fehr, and if that’s the final decision that’s cool with me too. Pat Sajak was happy, and that’s all that matters.
