Every week, Pro Hockey Talk will ask our readers to choose the best goal and save of that seven-day period. Sometimes there might not be seven nominees, whether that be because there weren’t enough great clips or one person received multiple awards. Either way, readers ultimately get to choose each week’s lucky winners.

Only the staunchest Alex Ovechkin haters are unhappy to see the return of the “Old Ovechkin.” OK, maybe he’s not quite at his former 100+ point level - or perhaps the Washington Capitals’ lean toward defense might keep him wrapped up a bit - but that sense of danger is back.

Ovechkin scored the Goal of the Week for February 28-March 6th, as you can see from the poll results below.
