Sitting in Section 405 as Ovechkin charged down the ice, I told myself, "It's not gonna happen, he always gets tripped and it never goes in." It seemed as if time slowed down and the play happened in slow motion. Then the puck crossed the line, and the crowd erupted.
Probably the best goal I've ever witnessed in person.
The Capitals are 14-1-1 when Ovie scores. The Capitals home record is 14-1-1.
M-V-P indeed. Now to just chase down Malkin for the points lead.
