From the drop of the puck you could kind of sense that Ovi was going to have a special night. He was buzzing out there, even more so than a normal Ovi night. And it all happened at once in the 2nd period, as Ovi potted 3 goals for his first hat trick since December 0f 2013. And despite that, he still leads the league in hatties since he entered the league in 05-06. I don’t have stats to back this up, but I’d guess Ovi has more 2 goal games than anyone between his last hat trick in 2013 and last night. Just the most dominate goal scorer you’ll ever see.
So the Caps did that thing where they won another game. That’s good for another 5 game winning streak, including 3 on the road. It’s kinda sick how good they are on the road. 20-4-2 at home, 20-5-2 on the road. That is nearly impossible. And that’s how NHL records are made:
How in the fuck do they have 84 points already? Insanity. 17 point lead on 2nd place in the Metro, 14 point lead in the East, and probably the sickest stat of them all- 8 point lead with FIVE games in hand over the rest of the league. Pretty sick stuff.
PS: Caps have Weezy F Baby on the squad. Huge.
