It’s no secret that the Capitals’ power-play has hit a dry spell of late, with the Capitals unable to convert in their last four games prior to Thursday night’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes (0-16). So when your power-play finally manages to score, you have to celebrate it. Even if it comes during practice.
At the Capitals’ morning skate on Thursday, Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals’ top power-play unit faced off against the Capitals’ penalty kill. And boy did it take a while for the puck to go in the net.
So when it did, off a snipe from Evgeny Kuznetsov, Ovechkin celebrated like it was a real NHL goal.
The puck lasered in just under Pheonix Copley’s glove-side.
