Alex Ovechkin had quite a historic game at the old Nassau Coliseum. Ovechkin scored a hat trick in his second consecutive game. The outing was Ovechkin’s third multi-goal game in a row – a new personal record.
After the game, Ovechkin took a photo holding all his milestone pucks from the evening. Ovechkin’s first goal (690) tied Mario Lemieux for 10th on the all-time goals list, the second pushed him past Mario (691), and the third tied him for ninth with Steve Yzerman (692).
