Alex Ovechkin scored his 668th and 669th career goals in a nice, four-point performance to lift the Capitals over the Leafs on Tuesday. Those two goals made Ovechkin tie and then pass Luc Robitaille in all-time goal scoring. Ovechkin is now 12th place on the list.
At the very same time in Houston, Juan Soto and Adam Eaton hit back-to-back home runs to to give the Nats 3-2 lead in the fifth inning of Game Six of the World Series.
DC synergy. Feel the power.
Ovechkin attempted 16 shots against Andersen, putting ten on net. It was that final shot, in overtime, that won the game: a blistering slapshot from the Ovi Spot.

Ovechkin’s first goal was the product of TJ Oshie’s flashy moves driving into the Toronto zone. Ovechkin cruised in to sweep the puck past Frederik Andersen and tie the game.
Meanwhile, just as Ovechkin scored the game-winner in Toronto, Juan Soto hit a home run to put the Washington Nationals up a run over the Houston Astros in Game Six of the World Series.
The go-ahead dinger and the overtime winner were done only 32 seconds apart.
