Alex Ovechkin Scores Twice In 27 Seconds, Beats My Personal Record

58645439

Still adjusting to head coach Bruce Boudreau’s line-shuffling, Alexander Ovechkin still has seven goals in seven games, which I guess is a pretty good scoring clip. Add on seven assists and you could say that Ovie is on a friggin’ tear, which shouldn’t be surprising to anyone, since the guy has been on a tear for four years.

Two of those goals came last night in a span of 27 seconds, as the Capitals took it to the Sharks and throttled them 4-1, snapping a four-game losing skid. Ovie was pleased with the effort but understands much more work is needed, including getting acclimated to his new linemates.

“It’s different, yeah, but we continue to work and everybody understands right now it doesn’t matter who you play with,” Ovechkin said. “You have to work hard and try to win the games.”

Indeed, Ovie, indeed. But two scores in 27 seconds? That is pretty impressive and like I mentioned, beat my personal scoring record.

Of course, I’m not referring to scoring in hockey. I can barely stand up on skates. Nevertheless, a piece of advice: if you ever discover the whereabouts of a weekend retreat for sex addicts, pitch a tent somewhere nearby. You won’t be sorry.

Oh, and bring some ice.

Where was I? Oh yeah, video of Ovie’s goals after the jump.
