Carlson's "No Look" Shot in 20 Frames

On first look, I wasn't sure if Caps prospect John Carlson had lifted his head while uncorking Tuesday night's tournament-winning OT goal in the WJC finals.

On second look, it's clear he stared down opposing defenseman Colten Teubert for the entire length of his shot...not bothering to peek at the goal mouth until the 20th frame.

Still-shot deconstruction, after the jump.  (Imagine red MS Paint arrows coming out of Carlson's eyes.)
