So. Alex Ovechkin has scored his 40th goal of the season.
Guess from where.
The captain himself drew the penalty, a trip from Hampus Lindholm. The power play was just one second from expiring when John Carlson’s pass found the Ovi spot.
Ducks goalie Ryan Miller didn’t stand a chance.
There was hugging.
Just 59 games into the season, Ovechkin has hit the 40-goal mark again. It’s the 10th time he’s gotten here, joining the company of just three other NHL players: Wayne Gretzky, who did 12 times; and Marcel Dionne and Mario Lemieux, who did it 10 seasons.
