When Alex Ovechkin signed with Dynamo Moscow in September, many expected the Russian machine to dominate, putting up points like Wayne Gretzky did during his 215-point 1985-86 season. Instead, Ovi has merely been a point per game player in the KHL, while his Capitals teammate Nicklas Backstrom has put up the gaudy numbers.
On Saturday, Ovi had his first humongous big game in the KHL. Ovi registered a hat trick — his first three-goal game since the Capitals’ 4-1 win against Toronto on January 22, 2011 — and scored his 100th career point in the Russian major leagues – Superleague and KHL, during Dynamo’s 4-2 win against Donbass Donetsk.
Now let’s see this hatty!
