Alex Ovechkin on how he would celebrate passing Gordie Howe: ‘Going to the bar right now. Hot dog. Nachos. Why not?’
Alex Ovechkin, 37, is in the best shape of his life as he chases what was once considered an unbreakable record.
Late Friday night, after passing Gordie Howe for second on the all-time goals list, Ovechkin was ready to have a cheat meal that was so carb-y it’d get a nod of approval from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“Going to the bar right now,” Ovechkin said to media. “Hot dog. Nachos. Why not?”
Previously, Ovechkin celebrated his 800-goals milestone with a beer bath, getting drenched in his favorite non-liquor drink, Bud Light.
