The last time Alex Ovechkin scored a goal it was last year. It seems like forever ago. Santa had still not delivered my amazing Sega Genesis/NES emulator, Uncle Phil was still alive (gone too soon), and Marty McSorley still had a shred of dignity.
Ovechkin’s last goal was Saturday, December 21nd against the New Jersey Devils: a goalless streak of five games, 12 days, and 35 shots.
It ended Thursday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.
