Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has unrivaled puck skills. So much so that juggling the puck has become easy for him. In years past, Ovechkin would pull the move off only in All-Star Game breakaway challenges. Now he’s using the move in games and has even scored with it.
Saturday, Ovechkin juggled the puck again, this time after his and Patrice Bergeron’s sticks knocked the puck air-borne in the neutral zone.
If you turn the sound on in the above Vine, you can hear Boston Bruins play-by-play announcer Jack Edwards get incredulous. “Ovechkin juggles the puck in the air three times,” Edwards says. “What is this, a Reebok ad?”
No, Jack. A Nike ad. A freaking Nike ad. Do your homework!
Thanks to @DanZaitsev1 for first pointing this out to us.
