This season has been a major blower, but there’s been one consistent bright spot. No matter what people say about his unsightly (but distorted) plus-minus, Alex Ovechkin has been phenomenal this year. On Tuesday he scored his 50th goal of the season, reaching the mark for the fifth time in his career. It was the first time he’s done so since 2009-10.
After the game, Ovi cheesed with the milestone puck.
“Tnx to my team,to be in history!!! [sic unbelievable]” he wrote, incoherently, on Instagram. “Its gonna be in my family for all time…”
Ovechkin also snapped a photo of the bottom of the puck. Hmm, that’s strange.
Looks like Ovi hit the puck off the post so hard it dented vulcanized rubber.
Of course. That’s so Ovi.
