Alex Ovechkin on goal 700: 'Without my teammates I couldn't do it.'

Alex Ovechkin on goal 700: 'Without my teammates I couldn't do it.'

While scoring goals can often be looked at as an individual achievement, Alex Ovechkin made sure to credit his teammates for the success he's had as one of the all-time best goal scorers in NHL history.

"All of my teammates over the years have treated me like family," Ovechkin said while reflecting on goal 700. "Without them, I would never be able to reach this milestone." 

Ovi finally eclipsed the 700 goal mark in the Capitals' 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday afternoon.

"Seven hundred means a lot to me," Ovechkin said. "Not a lot of players have done it in the history of the game so it's nice to be in that company." 

Ovechkin was certainly grateful for the achievement, but the fact of the matter is that this Capitals team has dropped eight of their last 11 games. An ecstatic Ovi is the one who wins games, not just scores goals.

Twitter reacts to Alex Ovechkin tallying his 700th career goal

With 4:50 remaining in the third period of the Capitals' loss to the Devils, Alex Ovechkin became the eighth player in NHL history to reach 700 goals. Deservingly so, Twitter exploded into an absolute moshpit of excitement and appreciation for Ovi's milestone:

As you can hear in these clips the crowd at Prudential Center broke out into soccer-style Ovi chants.


The Devils' crowd gave Ovechkin a standing ovation, the atmosphere after goal 700 was electric. 

This should go without saying but Caps Prom was lit for Ovi's 700th. Manifestation is key.

Now that the weight of 700 is seemingly in the rearview mirror hopefully, the Caps can get back to their winning ways.
