The Dallas Stars used Alex Ovechkin’s goals race as motivation: ‘Nobody wants to be a part of history that way’
Alex Ovechkin scored a hat trick against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday. Not only did it give Ovechkin seven tallies in his last four games, but it also made him the third player in NHL history to hit 800 goals. That milestone marker sent every Capitals player off the bench to celebrate with Ovechkin on the ice in Chicago.
The Dallas Stars, the Capitals’ next opponent, noticed.
They did not want that to happen to them.
