The Game Three Alex Ovechkin Goal

There was so much excitement in Chinatown Saturday. The Caps were playing their first Stanley Cup Final game since 1998.

That’s when another Russian Sergi Federov, a former Caps player himself, scored in game three of that series to give the Detroit Red Wings the win. Fitting for Ovi, a life-long fan of Federov.

Captain Ovechkin got the Caps on the board first in this game three with a glorious backhanded goal that dazed Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Our photographer, Brittney Marcum, caught the moment in keen detail!

It was the perfect set up for a winning night in Penn Quarter. We can’t wait for more hometown celebrations on Monday!
