Thursday night in the Caps’ (unnecessarily) thrilling 4-3 win over the Minnesota Wild, Alex Ovechkinscored his 14th career hat trick. With the goals, Ovechkin became the new league leader (34) in the category, passing some guy. He also moved into sole possession of 39th place on the all-time goals list (509 goals), leap-frogging one of the greatest players of all-time, Jean Beliveau.
After the game, Ovechkin was congratulated online by fellow rapperLil Wayne. (Wait, what? Is this a typo?)
