Ovechkin’s Amazing Goal From Game 5 Against Rangers

The Washington Capitals have been a major disappointment thus far in the postseason, losing their first two games at home and going into game 5 against the New York Rangers down three games to one. There is no one to really blame on their failures against the No.7-seeded Rangers; it can pretty much be chalked up to outstanding goaltending by New York’s Henrik Lundqvist. But now the Caps have a chance to pull off the upset after staying alive with a 4-0 game 5 win. They will need to win another game in New York but if they can, it would be hard to bet against them in game 7 at home. Hart Trophy candidate Alexander Ovechkin could be an easy scapegoat for their series deficit, but the man is doing just about all he can to get the puck in the net. He has an astounding 38 shots on goal in the five games, but only two goals. However, his second goal was quite an amazing play that is generating serious buzz. He shifts around one defender, drags the puck through another’s legs, and as he’s losing his edge unleashes a wicked backhand from a few feet out to beat Lundqvist. Check it out here:
