Alex Ovechkin Makes Mockery of Backchecking, Glides Into Zone During Rangers Goal (Video)

Alex Ovechkin is one of the game’s best offensive players, but his defensive skills — and efforts — are simply embarrassing.

At least they were on Wednesday night, when he was gliding through his defensive zone as the Rangers put up a third-period insurance goal at Madison Square Garden.

Check out his pathetic attempt at backchecking in the video below, and if you have kids who play hockey, please don’t let them watch.
