They tied the game moments earlier and had the goal waived off when it was clearly a good goal. They were robbed. Then Yakupov ties it, in his third (?) NHL game, with under 6 seconds on the clock. I think it's less excessive than the Ovie stick celebration, which was lame and premeditated. It was a bit over the top, but it was real, pure emotion. The 18 year old was pumped.
