Alex Ovechkin scored his 19th goal of the season late in the first period of Tuesday’s game against the Hurricanes. It extended Ovi’s point streak to nine games, gave the team some momentum heading into intermission, blah blah blah, look at what Twitter does when he scores a pretty one:

Ovechkin has 19 goals this season? I thought he was terrible and washed up and forgot how to shoot.
