Alexander Ovechkin recently passed Mario Lemieux on the all-time goal scoring list. He's now two goals short of 700 for his career.
He may be the greatest goal scorer of all time.
Last night, he recorded his third hat trick in his last six games.
The "great-eight" now has 14 goals in his last seven games and has 40 on the season.
Pittsburgh hates him. Of course you do. He's been Crosby's only true peer, apart from Malkin, since the two entered the league.
His greatness is undeniable.
Crosby is a top-5 player of all time and he's a better all around hockey player than Ovechkin. Ovechkin may be the greatest goal scorer ever.
Caps fans don't like Crosby. You don't like Ovechkin. But each fanbase should respect the others star.
Despite how I feel about the guy, I love watching Ovechkin play. You should soak it in too. This kind of talent doesn't come around very often.
