Saturday night, Alex Ovechkin scored a hat trick against the St. Louis Blues in his final game of the season. The clutch scoars gave the Russian machine his seventh 50-goal season. It also pushed Nicklas Backstrom, who assisted on all three Ovechkin goals, to the 50-assist plateau for the sixth time in his career.
On the plane ride home, Ovechkin posted a selfie of himself and Backy. “50 goals 50 assists !!!not bad!!💪😂,” Ovechkin wrote on Instagram.
An hour later, former Capital Brooks Laich left them a comment that you need to see.
