In case you aren’t paying attention, Alex Ovechkin has 65 goals. SIXTY-FIVE GOALS! The Washington Capitals are on an absolute roll right now and Ovechkin has lifted his team on his shoulders and refuses to let them lose.
Everyone thought it was over when forward Nicklas Backstrom put the game winning goal into his own net a few weeks ago. Since then, Ovechkin has led his team on a tear and is now in position to sneak in and possibly win the division.
Unless you are a fan of Boston or Carolina (ha ha, the Canes don’t have fans), I don’t see how you can NOT root for the Caps. Ovechkin exemplifies everything that is right about the game. He appreciates playing here, he loves it, and he works 100% on each and every shift, even when hurt.
If you think anyone other than Ovechkin should get the league MVP, you are not paying attention or you are probably an idiot.
I know I can’t wait to see what happens in the final weekend of the entire Eastern Conference.
