Video: Matt Hendricks shootout goal vs. Isles

In addition to having the postgame money quote, Capitals forward Matt Hendricks sealed last night’s come-from-behind victory over the New York Islanders with this nifty backhand deke:

As Comcast SportsNet’s Craig Laughlin put it, he’s got “more moves than a barrel of monkeys.” It came at a good time, right after rookie Dmitry Orlov’s impressive outing ended with a first-ever NHL shootout attempt that, uh, didn’t work out so well.

The Caps are off today, but the scratches are skating and Tarik will have a bit more from KCI later.
