Alex Ovechkin is a future hall-of-fame player. Twenty seconds into the Caps’ preseason game against the Carolina Hurricanes, he reminded a 21-year-old rookie defenseman named Jaccob Slavin of that fact.
Stampeding into the offensive zone like a bull through the streets of Pamplona, the Russian machine put the puck
through Slavin’s legs under Slavin’s stick. Slavin reached for the biscuit (tsk tsk) and tripped Ovechkin. The Great Eight managed to transfer the puck back onto his forehand and score while falling down.
I mean, oh my god, look at this nonsense.
The Caps lost 4-3 in the shootout, but who cares.
All hail Ovi.
