Empty Netters, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "We've seen this goal before - 2-20-09":
Ovechkin's effort reminded Jay of another goal roughly 21 years ago:
Minus the slick spin of course.
Note to the handful of Capitals fans who may stray here: This is not intended as an insult to Ovechkin. It's quite the opposite actually.
That's what Greg Wyshinski and others are missing, they analyze the goal "Minus the slick spin." Without it, the goal is still "out of the world", like the commentator in a clip is saying, but that slick spin-o-rama that makes it so special.
This goal will stand time, people will remember it forever.
