Alex Ovechkin is the best, and his first period goal against the Rangers is reason #844 why.
In addition to being a pretty goal, it is a weird goal.

Kuznetsov has the puck in neutral, but he’s not moving, so he passes to Ovi. Ovi carries it into the Rangers’ zone wide on the right. Staal has him covered, so Ovi cuts behind him and to the middle. JK, no he doesn’t — Ovi goes back wide, with Staal oblivious, and looses a wristshot that stuns Lundqvist.
A great sequence, for sure, but appreciate the following:
All in all, great goal! Caps lead 2-0.
#Caps Alex Ovechkin has now scored 21 goals against Henrik Lundqvist, marking his most against a goaltender in his career.
