The only reason Caps-Pens Game One went to overtime is because Alex Ovechkin didn’t finish off this golden chance set up for him by Nick Backstrom.
This pass is unbelievable.
Matt Niskanen chips the puck from deep in the Caps zone. In neutral, Nick Backstrom taps it back into the air and towards the stick of Alex Ovechkin.
That is uncanny.
Ovechkin put a backhand chance on Matt Murray but couldn’t finish.
