“I don’t know how this can continue,” said former Washington Capitals goaltender Brent Johnson at intermission, flabbergasted at what he just saw. Johnson, of course, was trying to find words for Alex Ovechkin‘s latest goal, his tenth in ten regular season games. Off the face-off, the Russian machine rips a perfectly placed wrist shot off the top left crossbar.

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk never stands a chance. It looks straight out of a video game.

Ovechkin now has 32 goals over his last 31 games, the best 31 game stretch of his career. He’s en fuego right now. He’s like a pitcher with a no-hitter through 8 innings. Leave the man alone. Do not talk to him. Do not look at him because he’s on a roll.

Imagine if Ovi starts scoring five-on-five goals on the rush. It’s going to be a crazy year.

    What a sick release. Never get tired of seeing that.

    Oh, Ovi. Made me switch my fan-girling to him for a few seconds before Holtby’s locks dragged me back to him.

    What a brilliant setup as well. MoJo has suddenly found his place. Maybe Oates has remade him as well.

    What a soft play from Yakupov’s side…

    How much longer until teams start sending a guy on faceoffs directly to ovi to interfere whether he gets the puck or not?

    In fact, it was so filthy that I am surpised and shocked that this post was not labeled “NSFW”

    It looks straight out of a video game.
    And I know which Video Game, too!
