After Mike Green, Alex Ovechkin, and Nicklas Backstrom scored to lead the Capitals to a 3-2 victory during Game 4 of their second round playoff series against New York, a reporter brought up the “Young Guns” nickname to Green in the locker room.

This shift is especially apparent for Alex Ovechkin, and the only way to perfectly illustrate it is with photos and GIF’s. Lots and lots of GIF’s.
