VIDEO: Jack Johnson scores, talks about doing The Tebow

Goal celebrations may be on the decline in the NFL, yet the LA Kings sure seem to be getting into the act. Fresh on the heels of Drew Doughty and Jarret Stoll doing the ‘love tap’ celebration a few weeks ago in Chicago, defenseman Jack Johnson posed for a quick ‘Tebow’ after he found the back of the net tonight vs. Washington…

After the game, Johnson explained it this way – “Have some fun while you’re scoring. I was watching the Broncos game with some buddies that flew in from Michigan and they said that if you score, you have to ‘Tebow’. I said, ‘You’re on!’”

He also said that it was a one time thing and don’t look for him to do it again in the future.

As for the overall game, Johnson went on to say “It’s a great feeling to give our goalie some breathing room finally. They’ve been playing out of this world all year. It’s nice to kind of give them a break here finally.”

The game was also filled with plenty of intensity, something Johnson welcomed – “It’s fun, it’s refreshing to play a team like that. Everyone wants to see new teams and I thought it was a fun hockey game.”

What about that Ovechkin guy? “It’s fun to play against guys like that,” said Johnson. “It’s just as much fun for us to play against him as it is for fans to watch him. He’s a great player and it’s fun to play a team we don’t see very much.”

For a different look at Johnson’s ‘Tebow’ – here’s video from the Washington feed. See what the Capitals announcers had to say as it all unfolded.
