Stop whatever you’re doing and watch this 62 seconds of glorious athletic achievement.
Until yesterday, I was pretty sure that Marek Malik’s shootout magic would stand as the goal of the year. That was until I saw Alexander Ovechkin, the Russian rookie wunderkind, score while sliding away from the net on his back with a Phoenix defenceman draped all over him. It’s a piece of hockey improvisational genius.
Sidney Crosby is going to be the most talented runner-up for Rookie of the Year in the history of the game.
