A big part of our mission here at RMNB is to explore different ways to enjoy hockey, which is maybe why some people take offense when we write about the players as human beings with human personalities. I can’t think of many ways to look at hockey that I would consider “invalid,” but right now I can think of one way that is essential.
Tonight Alex Ovechkin will try to record his sixth 50-goal season. Doing so would join him in history with some of the best scorers in hockey history, which is precisely where he belongs. One goal from Ovi would also tie him with Peter Bondra for most in franchise history.
And, most immediately, one goal from Ovi might win a game against the Carolina Hurricanes. This is one of the last so-called “easy” games left– if the Caps wanna jockey their way up the standings, a W tonight is pretty much mandatory.
Puck drops at 7 PM. Game is on CSN. Go Ovi, Go.
