Capitals vs. Sabres: Mathieu Perreault is really excited about winning

Bruce Bennett

Ovie's goal was good, but Perreault's celebration was better.

There were plenty of highlights from the end of the Capitals' win on Saturday that were worth mentioning. Mike Green's goal with half a minute left to tie it was cool, and Alex Ovechkin's shootout winner was awesome.

But those plays don't matter. No player on the ice in Buffalo topped Mathieu Perreault's wonderfully weird celebration after Ovie's shootout goal.

What's striking about this is how glazed over his eyes look. It's like undead Mathieu Perreault popped up and shook his zombie hands wildly at the camera. It also looks like once he started the dance move thing, something broke and he lost all control of his arms. It completely stopped the entire Capitals celebration.

I hope someone pressed the off button on him or something.
