Coming into tonight’s game, bearded beauty Karl Alzner had scored 15 career goals in eight NHL career seasons. Saturday against the Bruins, Alzner tallied number 16 and his fourth of the season. It was amazing.
Basically, Alzner forgot he was a passive, stay-at-home defenseman and started aggressively forechecking behind the Bruins net. What resulted was a pass and score that more resembled a goal connection between Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin.
Look at Alzner dangle below the goal line! And then drive hard to the net. I can’t believe I’m writing this right now.
Nicklas Backstrom also authored a beautiful, backhanded pass through Zdeno Chara’s legs.

The clutch goal tied the game at 1-1 heading into the third period. Alzner could not have been happier.
“You guys, I did a thing!”
