WATCH: Capitals Alexander Ovechkin nets league leading 50th goal
The Washington Capitals diminishing playoff chances haven’t effected Alexander Ovechkin’s goal scoring ability. The “Great 8″ has notched his 50th goal this season and leads Anaheim’s Corey Perry by 8 goals for the league lead.
Ovechkin’s plus/minus rating has been brought to question of late, however when you lead the NHL in power play goals (23) the rating will be very skewed. Check out Ovechkin’s 50th goal. This is Ovechkin’s 5th 50 plus goal season in 9 years.
