Way back in 2015, Alex Ovechkin opened up in an interview with Jeremy Roenick. Ovechkin told the Hall of Fame forward his true passions in life.
“I love to celebration,” Ovechkin said. “I love to goals.”
Ovechkin, who has some of the most enthusiastic cellies in the game, often celebrates his teammates’ goals more than his own — which is why I’d like to point you to the Capitals’ game Saturday against the Ottawa Senators.
In the second period, Jakub Vrana made a great stick check to steal the puck away from the Senators’ best player, Mark Stone. Vrana then raced to the net all alone on a breakaway where he deked Mike McKenna before beating the goaltender glove side.
Vrana went to one knee and pumped his fist to celebrate.
As V arrived at the bench, Ovechkin wanted to celebrate too — though there was some trolling involved.
Ovechkin gave Vrana a stinky, gross facewash. It’s cute at first. Then it becomes ridiculous when Ovi tries to rearrange all of Vrana’s face organs Mr. Potato Head style.
Vrana’s goal extended the Capitals’ lead to 3-0. The tally gave Vrana 11 goals on the season, two off his career high set last year.
