Alex Ovechkin sure is spectacular.
The Capitals were down 1-0 in the second period, and then Ovi happened.

It was a rare power play goal not from his office.
After forcing a turnover in the defensive zone, Ovechkin took a pass on the resulting four-on-two odd-man break and ripped a snapshot past Cam Ward. The goal was his 14th on the season.
As Locker said, that’s “all arms.”
Alex Ovechkin now has 539 career goals. The tally moved him past Keith Tkachuk into sole possession of 31st place on the all-time goal list.
Later in the second period, Ovechkin had one of his most beautiful individual plays of the season. Going past three Hurricanes players before almost scoring again.
Russians came to play tonight.
