Alex Ovechkin has put the Caps in the lead in Game Three of the Stanley Cup Final with a diving shot after a relentless effort in front of the net.
Yeah. That just happened.

John Carlson took the initial shot, which Marc-Andre Fleury stopped. After that, well, it’s pandemonium.
Just a jumble of bodies and sticks and one piece of rubber until Alex Ovechkin gets back to the front of the net and uses a diving backhand to score his 14th playoff goal.
Here’s another look.
Unbridled joy followed.
The Caps crowd gathered outside went wild.
With the goal Ovechkin ties John Druce’s mythical 1990 year for the most postseason goals in franchise history.
