Caps Prospect Filip Forsberg Gives Us A Great Goal And A Bad Celebration (Video)
When you score a sweet goal that starts a rally and gets your team back into the game, it’s totally natural to celebrate. Just try not to knock out a pane of glass while doing so. Otherwise, you could delay the game and sap your team’s newfound momentum in the process.
Leksand and BIK Karlskoga, two of the top teams from Sweden’s second-division Allsvenskan hockey league, squared off on Wednesday night in Leksand, Sweden. Karlskoga took a 2-0 lead into the third period; however, Washington Capitals’ no. 11 overall draft pick Filip Forsberg, 18, scored a beautiful goal to get his team on the board and make a game of it.
As you’ll see in the video, he came streaking down the left wing and blew by a defender with a nice little toe-drag. Then he flew by the keeper and roofed the puck.
Unfortunately, as you’ll also see in the video below, Forsberg apparently does not know his own strength, so when he jumped up on the glass to celebrate, he ended up breaking it and delaying the game.
Check it out:
Luckily, the delay did not, in fact, destroy his team’s momentum. Leksand went on to score two more goals to complete the comeback.
