Alex Ovechkin scores spectacular goal while falling to the ice
Alex Ovechkin has been spectacular for the Washington Capitals in this year’s playoffs, but his goal Saturday against the New York Rangers will be hard to top.
Ovechkin split two defenders, then, while falling to the ice, rifled a shot past Henrik Lundqvist into the far top corner of the net.
The Caps still lost to the Rangers 3-2, because the NHL doesn’t give style points on goals.
Chimera on Ovechkin's goal: "Nothing surprises me anymore with that guy. It was one of the best I think I’ve seen from him so far."

Evgeny, what was your reaction to Ovechkin's goal? "Sick." What'd you say to him after? "Sick."

Trotz when asked if Ovechkin is the best player in the world. "On my team he is." (Nice dodge) #Capitals
