I was actually watching this game live when the goal happened. Unfortunately I had my attention diverted as I was prepping for my Friday overnight show so I really missed how fantastic the goal was until I saw it on replays. Damn, I know it’s nothing new for Alexander Ovechkin, but that guy just amazes me with his incredible goals. Check this one out that made the score 3-0 in favor of the Caps against the Rangers in Game 5 of their series:
Unfortunately we may only be getting one more game from Ovechkin since his team is still facing elimination. Looks like yanking Theodore and going with rookie Simeon Varlamov was the right move — certainly paid off with Friday night’s shutout.
