Alex Ovechkin just scored his first goal of the postseason. It was an Ovi Shot From The Ovi Spot on the power play. The goal, Ovechkin’s 37th career playoff tally, gave the Caps a 3-1 lead heading into the second intermission.
The goal was great and all, but I want to direct you to the pass made by Nicklas Backstrom.
He sauced a pass through TJ Oshie’s skates. Brilliant.
During intermission, former Caps goaltender Brent Johnson explained that Backstrom’s pass was so hard, Mason had no chance to recover, especially considering Ovechkin’s heavy shot.
