All about Ovie

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Alex Ovechkin scored his 500th and 501st goals to be­come the 43rd NHL player to reach the mile­stone and the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals beat the Ottawa Sen­a­tors 7-1 on Sun­day night. Ovechkin reached the mark in vin­tage fash­ion, scor­ing from just be­yond the left hash marks dur­ing a se­cond-pe­riod power play to give the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals a 5-1 lead. Team­mates mobbed Ovechkin, and he got an ex­tended stand­ing ova­tion and took a skate around the rink, ac­knowl­edg­ing the cheer­ing crowd that in­cluded his par­ents. He later drew an­other roar while wav­ing to fans from the bench. Wash­ing­ton now has won four straight over­all and 10 con­sec­u­tive home games.
