After scoring 500 goals and tallying 1,000 points, Alex Ovechkin joined two exclusive clubs full of NHL legends and Hall of Famers. 10 days ago, Ovechkin tied one of the game’s most iconic players, Maurice “Rocket” Richard, for 28th all time in NHL goals.
On Thursday, Ovechkin tied and then later passed HOF’er Lanny McDonald in points to move into 82nd place on the all time NHL scoring list.
During a Papa John’s commercial that he filmed in late 2016, Alex Ovechkin revealed that his dream as a child was to be a pizza delivery guy.
Well, after the Caps destroyed the St. Louis Blues 7-3 at Scottrade Center Thursday night, Ovechkin wanted pizza delivered to his belly ASAP.
Monday night in Pittsburgh, the Capitals lost to the Penguins 8-7 in overtime. After jumping out to a 3-0 lead, the Caps — who looked like they were going to coast to their tenth-straight victor — lost all their momentum after a blown call. Pens forward Patric Hornqvist crosschecked TJ Oshie in the head.
Two days later, Alex Ovechkin was still not happy about it.
Tuesday afternoon, former Capitals forward Brooks Laich shared a personal health tip to his followers on Instagram.
“I am a huge advocate of homemade organic juicing as many of you know,” Laich said. “For those of you who have inquired about what I put in my juices, here it is – kale, spinach, ginger, beets, celery, carrots, cucumbers, a lemon, tomato, apple, and a pear. I drink an 18oz juice every morning and @juleshough drinks a 12oz. The long term health benefits are incredible, but also you will have endless energy and positivity during the day! We use a @ceadovenezia juicer, would highly recommend it! Let me know what you put in your juices! ”
Laich would immediately regret asking as Alex Ovechkin would chime in with the following.
Whatever that was between the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins, it died the way it lived: messily, physically, while blurring the lines of legality.
But if you rewind just a few moments, you’ll find a play that everyone can agree on: Sidney Crosby tripped the living hell out of Alex Ovechkin.
Last week, Alex Ovechkin tallied 1,000 points. Our most-read post of that day was not the one detailing Ovi’s milestone. Instead it was our article entitled Why the Penguins didn’t salute Alex Ovechkin for his 1,000th point.
The post pointed out that the Penguins ignored the milestone, choosing not to stick-tap or acknowledge the hockey legend in any way. The next day, ESPN’s Around The Horn picked up our post and discussed it on national TV.
Many of you have reached out to us see the full segment. ESPN was kind enough to send us the full video.
Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is a certified legend after tallying his 1,000th point last week. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time for his people.
After tallying an assist in the Caps 5-0 win over the Flyers, Ovechkin met up with three members of the Montgomery Blue Devils hockey team in the Verizon Center parking deck. Of course he posed for an amazing picture.
