The Caps beat the Jets, no one cares – ALEX OVECHKIN SCORED 600 GOALS. (Not all in this game, but like cumulatively in his career.)
Yeah. Alex Ovechkin scored during a 5-on-3 for get his 599th career goal and to reclaim the league’s scoring lead. The game lead, however, was lost less than a minute later when Nikolaj Ehlers scored after a bad defensive-zone turnover by Lars Eller.
In the second period, Alex Ovechkin scored the 600th goal of his career, joining just 19 other players in history of the league.
Winnipeg got much more aggressive in the third period, then white-hot Patrik Laine notched his 41st of the season to tie the game and force overtime. The Caps dominated play in extra time, then Evgeny Kuznetsov ended it!
Caps beat Jets 3-2 in overtime!

I don’t wanna do some hokey philosophical thing here again. You know the drill by now. Alex Ovechkin is the best goal-scorer in hockey history. If you’re reading this right now, you already know and appreciate that, and you’re with us in feeling a sense of gratitude for every magical moment we’ve watched the dude make happen. 🐐
