Alex Ovechkin’s Slapshot Destroyed the In-Net Camera

 

I’m not going to lie, I don’t know much about the Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin other than the fact that he used to date tennis player Maria Kirilenko (sorta kidding). After tonight, however, I will also know him as the guy who wrecked the goal-cam with a baller slapshot.

Coming into Tuesday’s game against the Oilers, Ovechkin trailed the league lead for most goals scored by just three. But after netting goals No. 26 and 27 in the first period alone, he is threatening to make it a threesome if he can pull off a hat trick. (The Caps currently lead 4-2 in the third period).

As an added bonus, the NHL is now aware that their cameras are not impervious to random, pinpoint shots.
