Last night, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin quietly had a three-point game. In the first period, he scored two goals, one of which was lucky, lucky, lucky. The Ovi Spot was once again accommodating for The Great Eight.

Ovechkin now has 48 goals on the season and 85 multi-goal games in his career. Last night was the tenth time this season where Ovechkin’s scored the game’s opening goal.

Here’s some more mind-blowing stats from the Capitals: Ovechkin has scored 22 powerplay goals this season, tying the Capitals single-season record. Wednesday marked Ovechkin’s ninth multi-goal game and fourth multi-power-play goal game of the season. Ovechkin has recorded three or more points in a game seven times this season and leads the NHL in goals, power-play goals (22) and shots (358).

Whatevs.

Off goalie, off that Kings dude, nothing but net. Just like they drew it up.

Russian machine shoot along ice. Too easy.

    Put the puck on the net and good things happen.

    Where do the Kings come off with the prissy a** attitude last night? Have never seen so much whining and complaining after every single rush. I’m talking mostly about their attitude in the first half of the game. So the other team gets a couple early power play goals against….oh you aren’t used to that?…bust your ass and get back in the game. What do the Kings do? Whine like little girls…I dont get it, you win one cup and now the world owes you every call….lost a lot of respect for the Kings last night.

    Except for they busted their ass and got back into the game. Hard to critize too harshly. We on the other hand, blew ANOTHER two goal lead.

    Yeah, that two goal lead is the Caps Achilles heel, apparently. They are never safe with it… I almost would rather see them have to dig themselves out of a hole from the beginning than to get ahead and start to get complacent, only to break my heart and lose such a clutch game.

    I’d like to see Oates coach us to a multi goal lead, then tag team coaching assignments with *shudders* Dale Hunter.
