Ovechkin’s greatest assist wasn’t even on tv
Yes Caps fans, the headline says it all!
The Capitals squared off in an exhibition game with the Nashville Predators on Wednesday night and almost everybody, minus the fans at Verizon Center and the one’s who were listening to the game on various outlets, missed it. But what the fans at Verizon Center saw that even the radio listeners couldn’t (obviously right?) was the beautiful pass from Alexander Ovechkin to set up Nicklas Backstrom’s goal.
Ovechkin, with a little help from friend and fellow linemate Marcus Johansson, lifted the stick of Nashville Predators Paul Gaustad, and in one fell swoop stole the puck from the former Buffalo Sabre, dished it to “MJ90″ who in turn dished it to Backstrom, who blasted the one-timer past goalie Carter Hutton.
OK so let’s review:
Ovechkin steals the puck from Paul Gaustad AND passes the puck to Marcus Johansson AT THE SAME TIME! Literally in one motion he steals the puck and passes it at the same time!
Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself. Go ahead and fast forward till about 22 seconds in and just be amazed!
