You knew Alex Ovechkin would crack Kari Lehtonen eventually. Down two goals and on the power play, yeah, sure, that sounds just right.
And with an Ovi Shot from the Ovi Spot, the Great Eight has tied The Great One in powerplay goals.
It’s exactly what you’d hoped. Niskanen and Backstrom keep looking for holes along the half wall, and then dropping to see if Ovechkin is open. Eventually he is, and he does not waste the opportunity.
How do you stop that?
With 204 PPGs, Ovechkin now ties for 15th all time, right next to the sports greatest player, Wayne Gretzky.
