Alex Ovechkin tried to flip Alex Chiasson’s helmet over his eyes after scoring two goals. Nicklas Backstrom saved the day.
The Washington Capitals are full of characters and this is a reminder of that.
Thursday night against the Boston Bruins, Alex Chiasson had the biggest night of his Capitals career so far. The plucky, bottom-six forward scored twice, notching the fourth multi-goal game of his career. Chiasson’s second goal of the night and his sixth of the 2017-18 campaign ended up being the game-winning tally – his first as a member of the Capitals.
On the bench, captain Alex Ovechkin decided to show his admiration by pranking Chiasson on the bench.
