Alex Ovechkin may have had three assists on the night, but young Jakub Vrana had the pass of the night.
It didn’t result in a goal, but you have to see this.
On a four-on-three break into the Oilers defensive zone, TJ Oshie found Vrana in the center lane. Vrana faked a one timer and instead, using the blade of his stick, authored a perfect misdirection pass right into Nicklas Backstrom’s wheel house.
Here’s another look zoomed-in and in slow motion.
Backstrom couldn’t connect, but wow what a head’s up play.
