Video: Hull, Gretzky, Capitals honor Ovechkin for 500th goal
You can’t blame the Washington Capitals - or the hockey world - for ignoring Alex Ovechkin’s outstanding accomplishment of reaching 500 goals (and counting).
As you can see from the video above, all-time greats tipped their caps to the Caps’ icon for going 500-plus.
Good stuff, right?
Speaking of all-time greats, let’s wonder: can Ovechkin end up passing Wayne Gretzky and setting a new all-time mark for goals? Read all about it on CSNMidAtlantic.com.
Alex Ovechkin has a higher goals per game average (0.62) than Wayne Gretzky (0.6). Keep in mind it's more difficult to score today.— Andre Khatchaturian (@ArmenianSports) January 15, 2016
Either way, passing 500 goals at age 30 is the sort of thing that leaves the rest of us wondering what we’re doing (or have done) with our lives ...
... But at least we’ve been able to watch No. 8.
