Alexander Ovechkin's Sick Goal

I finally found video of this goal from last night. Ovechkin backhand passes the puck off the boards, while spinning, to himself, then falls on his ass while being shoved by a defensemen, and scores a goal while sliding across the ice.

It proves two things:

1. Alexander Ovechkin is the best player in the NHL. It's not even close. He will score 60+ goals, hit you harder than Scott Stevens, and play the game with more passion than anyone else.

2. Russia is better than Canada. Ovechkin is Russian. Sidney Crosby is Canadian. Canada is America's hat while Russia is a land of vodka and Siberian frostbite. Russia>Canada.

He's my favorite player in the NHL. Maybe in sports. That's how good he is. He also is awesome for moments like this - getting caught at the All-Star Game checking out the one good thing about Canada.

(If you still don't think he's the best player in the NHL, watch Ovechkin's favorite goal scored)
