Alex Ovechkin’s Historic Achievement

Alex Ovechkin, the legendary Capitals forward, etched his name in NHL history once again. He became only the third player ever to score 20 goals in 19 consecutive seasons.

But Ovechkin didn’t stop there—he achieved this milestone while playing for the same team throughout his illustrious career.

With this win, the Capitals moved into the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference, positioning themselves for a playoff berth. Their consistent performance, led by Alex Ovechkin’s scoring prowess, bodes well for their postseason aspirations.
