Alex Ovechkin’s Reaction To Jakub Vrana’s Goal is Absolutely Priceless

The Capitals are currently tied with the Vegas Golden Knights 2-2 in
Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, with the Capitals’ most recent goal coming on a power play from captain Alex Ovechkin. Capitals rookie Jakub Vrana started the scoring of a potentially Stanley Cup-clinching game on a beautiful feed from Tom Wilson. 

While Ovechkin’s reaction to scoring his own goal was an example of the exuberant enthusiasm he plays with, his reaction to Vrana’s goal was downright priceless.

After receiving the pass from Wilson, Vrana went in all alone on Vegas goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and put the puck top-shelf for his third goal of the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs and first of the contest. Vrana has played well in the first four games of the Stanley Cup Final and many felt that Vrana was due for a goal of his own. Ovechkin, who has been a man on a mission throughout the Capitals’ playoff run, seemed even more jubilant than usual.

Which, considering the magnitude and potentially historical game, shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has watched Ovechkin this season.
