Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Russia's Alexander Ovechkin fights for the puck against Norway's goalkeeper Lars Haugen during the men's hockey qualification game at the Bolshoy Ice Dome during the Sochi Winter Olympics on Tuesday.

Despite Ovechkin's leap, he did not score a goal against Norway, and he remains scoreless in the last three games. Russia won 4-0, eliminating Norway from the competition.
