That was Ovechkin’s 471st goal in his career. Today is Ovi’s 14th multi-goal game this season and the 99th of this career. I want one more.
Ovechkin has no hat tricks this season. One more goal would be his first hat trick, and it would make this his 6th 50-goal season, plus he’d tie Peter Bondra for the most career goals in franchise history, and– oh yeah– he’d give the Caps the lead in a big divisional game.
