Capitals’ Chimera uses his head to find the back of the net

The Washington Capitals found themselves in need of a spark in the second period of Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh, and they got it from Jason Chimera.

Chimera found the back of the net after Marc-Andre Fleury tried to poke-check the puck away from danger. Fleury did the exact opposite though, as the puck came up, hit Chimera in the head and went into the net.

The Capitals tied the game at two when Andre Burakovsky beat Fleury on a breakaway. The Penguins jumped back ahead less than a minute later when Tom Kuhnhackl scored.
