While the NHL and NHLPA race to a January 11th deadline to save the season, we’re reminded how weird future Capitals/Hurricanes games are going to be once/if the lockout is lifted.
Alex Ovechkin and Dynamo Moscow took on former Capital Alex Semin and Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod on Friday. And in Ovi’s first game since getting engaged to Maria Kirilenko, the Russian machine tallied two points, including his 19th goal of the season, the game-winning tally. Dynamo would win 3-1.
Video of Ovechkin’s goal is below.
This may be one of the easiest goals of Ovi’s career. As Leo Komarov brings the puck into Torpedo’s zone, Ovi curls to the middle. Komarov hits him with a pass, and Sasha Major does the rest. Pretty wretched goaltending and defense.
Meanwhile, Sasha Minor had five shots… and… wait for it… a hooking penalty! Semin was on the ice when Ovechkin scored. Honestly, it was fun typing that.
Nicklas Backstrom, who suffered a neck injury on December 26th, missed his third straight game.
