35 seconds into the first period, Alex Ovechkin scored his 1,000th career point in dramatic fashion. After skating the puck down the right wing, Ovechkin cut to the middle of the nice where he beat Marc-Andre Fleury clean with a snap shot.
While the goal was epic, Wes Johnson’s call of the historic tally might have been even more goosebumps inducing.

John Walton’s goal call was also fantastic.
