And that makes 48 goals for Alex Ovechkin. Early in the first period, Joel Ward set Ovechkin loose in the Rangers zone. Ovi outmuscled the D, moved to the Ovi spot, and released a screened shot to beat Cam Talbot.
Madison Square Garden erupted in boos, which Ovechkin soaked up like a heel-turned anteater.
That makes 48 goals for Ovi, the most in the league by 8, where Stamkos and Nash are tied. Ovi is third in overall points now as well, just four behind Sidney Crosby.
And we’re just two goals shy of his 6th 50-goal season. It’s a good time to be an Ovi fan.
