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.
