Lucky sister-in-law, CCM sticks, and the bakery: Alex Ovechkin and other players try and fail to explain consecutive hat tricks
Alex Ovechkin became the first player in one hundred years to score consecutive hat tricks to start the season. Ovi even added a fourth goal in the second period Saturday to tally his fourth career four-goal game ever. In a third-period stretch between Thursday and Saturday, Ovechkin has scored seven goals.
This is the best start to a season in Ovechkin’s career. So surely, there must be a reason for his insane early-season success.
Except no one really could.
