Everybody, please welcome Alex Ovechkin to the 2017 playoffs. In the second period of the second game of the first round, Ovi booked a cruise to Ovi Island, where not a single Leaf could be found.
Cue the pass. Cue the goal.

The third line had drawn a penalty from Martin Marincin, so the PP went to work. The action was low, drawing Matt Hunwick away from the Ovi Spot. Ovi was lonely until Oshie sent him a postcard in the form of a puck.
He freaking sunk it.
Ovechkin’s 42nd playoff goal in his 86th playoff game has tied the game.
Seriously, Leafs, you may want to cover this guy.
