With Slapshot MIA, a Capitals fan updated Alex Ovechkin’s goal counter to 796
The Washington Capitals defeated the Seattle Kraken 4-1 on Friday, notching their first three-game winning streak of the season. The Caps also hit the Bifecta Of Awesome when Alex Ovechkin scored.
As the buzzer was about to sound, Ovechkin took a pot shot at Seattle open’s net, plowing over former teammate Andre Burakovsky in the process. The puck found its target with four seconds to go giving Ovi career goal number 796. Capital One Arena roared in anticipation as Ovechkin received the puck and cheered even louder when he lit the lamp.
There was another crowd-sourced layer to Ovi’s goal that made it more special, too.
