Alex Ovechkin scores and dances

The game-winning goal that preceded this dance may not be long remembered. It was a great individual move by Alex Ovechkin, but the conclusion was a pass that was interrupted by a Sabres skate and then deflected into the goal.

But the individual move that followed will be memorialized online for quite some time. This is Alex Ovechkin, dancing with joy, on skates.

Now the only question is what to call the moves. The Ballex? The Cabbage (Stuffing) Patch? The Left (S)wing? The Ovi Hop?
