So here’s a very unusual Alex Ovechkin goal.
When was the last time you saw an Ovi wraparound? The answer is Right Now.
Halfway into Saturday’s roader in Detroit, John Carlson served Ovechkin the puck for a rush shot, but Ovi couldn’t get a lane. Instead, he skated below the goal line. Carlson set a pick for him there. With the screen, Ovechkin gave a quick release that Detroit goalie Jonathan Bernier didn’t see coming.

Glove kiss and an air punch. That’s eighteen goals this season for the Great Eight, putting him second in the NHL in goals. He’s currently riding a three-game goal streak.

Meanwhile, John Carlson recorded a substantial assist on the goal, his 29th of the season, second highest in the NHL.
