Capitals' Marcus Johansson smashes camera with goal (GIF)

Marcus Johansson of the Washington Capitals had a pretty impressive goal against the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. The goal game late in the first period, when he got a one timer right in front of the crease and slapped it in the net.

However, the net didn’t stop the puck…the net camera did. The camera also took a major hit from the shot, so big that it broke. Here’s a GIF of the shot, courtesy of SB Nation’s twitter account, @sbnation.


Here’s the link of the GIF if it doesn’t load for you.

The goal has helped the Caps, as they are currently tied with the Senators 3-3 with under 10 minutes to go in the second period.

Washington is 12-10-2 and in second place in the Metropolitan division, while Ottawa is sitting at 9-11-4 on the season, which puts them in sixth place in the Atlantic division.

Other goal scorers for the Caps include Eric Fehr and Brooks Laich, while Bobby Ryan, Chris Phillips, and Colin Greening each scored for Ottawa.
