Alex Semin, Washington Capitals

It seems like the ‘other Alex’ is growing tired of having to see his line-mate and fellow countryman Alex Ovechkin stealing all the spotlight with his marquee goals. His last few have been something else. On Saturday, Semin scored from center ice on Tim Thomas of the Bruins in overtime. The goal traveled roughly 80 feet. Tuesday saw Semin score his 100th goal of his career. But it wasn’t so much the importance of the goal since his team was already down 5-0 but rather how it was scored. Semin dropped to his knees to play the puck and would fire home a wrist shot that would beat Cam Ward off his knees. His 36th of the season can be found below courtesy of the NHL.
