Aside from the occasional night off – or the even less common instance when a save or goal isn’t deemed worthy – the gang at PHT will decide which tally or stop is the best of any given night. Once those two winners are determined, we’ll share our reasoning (and most importantly, the video clip for each) in posts for your viewing pleasure.
Alex Ovechkin has had his troubles scoring goals at the same rate he has in the past this season, but when he does get them he does his part to make them memorable. During the Caps 4-1 loss to the Kings yesterday afternoon, Ovechkin gave Caps fans a reminder of what he can do when he’s got the space to do it.
In the first period, Ovechkin carried the puck up the left wing before being defended by Drew Doughty. Doughty thought he had the correct angle to defend Ovechkin . As it turns out, Doughty gave Alex all the room he needed in order to let a wicked snap shot go from out deep and beat Kings rookie goalie Jonathan Bernier.
