Ovechkin shoots... and scores! But how?
How does Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin score so many goals? Canadian professor and author of "The Physics of Hockey" Alain Hache reveals the science of a slap shot, and what gives Ovechkin his edge. (AJ Chavar/The Washington Post)
H/t to Lindsay Applebaum
Canadian professor still can't explain what gives Ovechkin the edge. Flexing the stick? Everybody does it, but why Crosby can't shoot like Ovechkin?
Tinted visor is not an explanation either, if it would be, everybody would wear tinted visors. And best players never look where they will shoot, they look somewhere else to deceive the goalie.
Canadian professor? bwahaha
