Ovechkin scored goal # 735, Rangers broke the opponent's goalkeeper and won, Sorokin became the first star

The game began at one o'clock local time, and the hosts looked sluggish in the first period, but the guests were cheerful.

The hero of the last world championship, Manjapane, opened the scoring, and then Elias Lindholm scored a double before the first break.

0-3 after the first period, everything seemed clear in this match.


But the Capitals weren't going to give up. Of course, something had to be changed, and the head coach of Washington, Peter Laviolette, started with the goalkeeper. Vitek Vanechek , who conceded three, did not come out in the second period, Ilya Samsonov took a place in the goal.

Well, “Washington” needed a bit of luck to start the chase, and it came at the most unexpected moment. The hosts were in the minority, Calgary was preparing an attack, but the most experienced Johnny Goodro, in a collision with Kuznetsov, lost the puck on his blue line. Kuzya ran away one on one with the goalkeeper and broke the score.

Five minutes later, the hosts closed the gap, and here a completely unobvious character became the hero. 22-year-old Slovak defender Martin Fegervari , who played for two seasons in the AHL, opened the scoring with his goals in the best league on the planet.


But Washington leveled the score with the efforts of the main star. Ovechkin scored with a wrist shot from the throw-in circle, and this goal was the 735th in Ovi's career.

0: 3 in the first period, 3: 0 in the second, what will happen in the third?


But nothing, the opponents began to play cautiously, as if overtime had already begun, only in the “5 vs 5” mode. There were very few throws.

But the real overtime turned out to be quite bright. For most of the extra time, Washington played with a purely Russian squad: Samsonov in goal, Orlov, Kuznetsov and Ovechkin in the field.

And just our four and missed. For some reason Kuznetsov went to put pressure on the goalkeeper, stayed behind and did not have time to return. “Calgary” rolled out three of them against two hosts, Ovechkin missed Lindholm in the center, and the Swede made a hat-trick, and the pass was given by Goodro, who was rehabilitated for a blooper, for whom this point became the 500th in his career.


Washington is losing, although if you remember how events developed in the first period, one point in this match is more gained than lost.
