Alex Ovechkin: Career Point #500

From last night's Caps-Rangers game at Madison Square Garden. Caps won 6-5 for their 12th straight win.

The game was late in the second period and the Caps were down 5-3. With fewer than 10 seconds remaining in this period the Caps were on the verge of seeing their franchise-record winning streak disappear. Ovechkin's goal pumped the team up and that momentum carried over into the third period as the Caps would score two more unanswered goals to extend their record streak to 12.

Simply incredible. I want this goal in the blog archives for Benjamin, who is rapidly becoming a Caps fan.

The Caps extended the streak to 13 with a 5-2 win over Atlanta. Pittsburgh is next on Sunday at noon on NBC, weather permitting as the Penguins are coming in from Montreal Saturday night.
