This video from IIHF World Cup in May 2011 was just posted recently on YouTube and... oh yeah, it's a collection item! :-)
IIHF World Cup in Bratislava, Russia vs Finland. Ovie Breaks Goalie's Stick 5/13/2011
This is what Sidney Crosby would never be able to achieve even if he'll practice it 24x7, Ovechkin's shot is a God-given talent.
This video is another addition to Ovi's wrister series:
- March 29, 2011: Ovechkin breaks Cam Ward's stick with a wrister
- July 2, 2010: Ovechkin's wrister breaks the goalcam's protective plastic that is DESIGNED to withstand the hardest shots.
Ovechkin scores on breakaway against Penguins and breaks the goal cam.
- November 5, 2010: “The whole left shin pad was caved in [after Ovechkin's wrister],” the Maple Leaf centre Tim Brent said in amazement on Friday. “That’s never happened to any of my equipment.”
- February 25, 2007: Scott Clemmensen (back then NJ goalie) comments on his dented mask by Ovechkin's wrister: "I have been hit in the mask a lot, but never like this. When it hits the wiring, the wiring bents and takes the velocity out of it. I couldn't believe it went in after that."
