The Capitals fan who caught Alex Ovechkin’s ‘First Star’ puck after passing Gordie Howe: ‘I lucked out’
Alex Ovechkin scored the 801st and 802nd goals of his career against the Winnipeg Jets on December 23, tying and passing Gordie Howe for second on the NHL’s all-time goals list. While the night was special for Ovechkin, it was also memorable for Capitals fans who were there and able to witness history live at Capital One Arena. Some even played a small part in the historic night just by being in the right place at the right time.
One of those Capitals fans was Kendall J., who attended the game with her father Jason. At the end of the night, Kendall went home with not only one cool souvenir from the game but two.
