Alex Ovechkin scored his historic 500th NHL goal tonight and what a magical moment it was. The goal brought all of Ovechkin’s teammates to the ice in celebration. It inspired a three-minute long standing ovation from the Verizon Center crowd. Ovechkin’s mother Tatyana cried happy tears.

…Justin.

That’s right.
