The Arizona Coyotes utilized a bold penalty-killing strategy in the first period. Stacking all four of their penalty killers to the right side of the ice, the Coyotes left Alex Ovechkin, one of the greatest power-play goal-scorers of all-time, wide open in his office. Ovechkin was given the entire left half of the ice to operate.
He scored. Easily. I call it: Ovechkin Island.
Seriously? Have they not heard of The Ovi Shot From The Ovi Spot?
I decided to commemorate this terrible hockey decision with a terrible photoshop.
The design is inspired by an HBoards user who made this beautiful artwork last year. The Philadelphia Flyers also employed this strategy against Ovechkin in the first round of the playoffs.
