NHL time of the day! Seconds in which Ovechkin realized that Washington was already in the playoffs

Everyone knows the name of the happiest man in Washington.

“Washington” still got a ticket to the playoffs! In a tense game against Philadelphia, the Capitals managed to take the lead just three minutes before the end of the third period and finally achieved the desired result.

In fact, it was this match that provided the main images of today’s day. With the score at 2-1 and just seven seconds left, the cameras focused their attention on Alexander Ovechkin, a man who has repeatedly said that his main goal is to lead Washington to the playoffs.

The objective was achieved. And Ovi just smiled.


This regular season became an even bigger test for Washington. During the long months of the 2023/2024 campaign, we observed completely different emotions in Ovechkin. However, it seems that for the first time in the entire season, Alexander smiled like this: with relief, from the bottom of his heart, with a calm soul.

The same can be said about the rest of the hockey players on the capital team.

With the final siren, Washington players took to the ice. Mainly two figures: Ovechkin and goalkeeper Charlie Lindgren. Maybe it was these two guys who saved and made the season for the Capitals.


Washington made the playoffs for the 15th time during Ovi’s tenure with the team. Prior to this, the team failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup only in the 2005/2006, 2006/2007, 2013/2014 and 2022/2023 seasons. You were completely different for the franchise.

On the other hand, I would like to mention another important figure, who is probably now in a state of colossal happiness. This is Washington head coach Spencer Carbery. The 42-year-old specialist, who spent his first season at the helm of an NHL team, was repeatedly criticized during the championship. However, it was he who achieved what, for example, the 2023/2024 regular season champion, Peter Laviolette, could not achieve. For a beginner, this is an amazing result!

The capital team has a battle ahead with the Rangers. But today the Capitals can rest and rejoice.

And the main person of the capital team will be one person. Alexander Ovechkin. His happy smile speaks of it.
