Just like shooting womp rats back home, John Carlson‘s scoring acumen is something preternatural. Take for example his goal on Thursday night, a spin-a-rama from above the circles that had no business being on target and even less business hitting the back of the net.
He wasn’t even looking! Blind, like Polyphemus, Carlson takes the pass and fires with effortless fluidity. Midichlorians flowing. The puck sails past a flailing Swede before beating poor old Scott Darling in net.
Stan Galiev registered his first NHL assist on the tally.
Please also note little Marcus Johansson screening the goalie. That’s the second time he’s done it tonight.
The Caps have the Hawks in a two-goal hole. #twogoalhole.
Tonight marks #Caps John Carlson’s second multi-point game of the season (10/10: 2a) and his 34th career multi-point game.
