Here’s your amazing hockey stat of the day via NBC Sports.
Alex Ovechkin led the NHL in game-winning goals during the 2010s. And his lead over the next closest players is staggering.

The Russian machine scored 15 more GWGs than Phil Kessel, Steven Stamkos, and Brad Marchand who were tied in second place. The Capitals captain is just up there all alone on the apex of Mt. ScoresALot doing his thing.
Ovechkin has scored 109 game-winning goals in his career, which currently ranks him sixth in NHL history.
Beyond PPGs from his office, Ovechkin has made clutch goals in crunch time just another daily, routine thing he does. And here are some of my favorite in recent history.
You guys, this is why they call overtime, Ovi-time.
