Ovechkin Having a Down year
In sports there are very few things guaranteed. That is especially true in DC sports. During the past 3 seasons Ovechkin has had 50 goals or more. However, Ovechkin so far only has 25 goals through 52 goals which is his 2nd worst goals per game pace of his career.
With 30 games left Ovechkin doesn’t have much of a chance of hitting 50 goals again this year. Sidney Crosby scored 25 goals in 30 games and Ovechkin certainly has the fire power to do it as well, but it is a very tall order. As long as the Caps keep winning, and they are successful during the playoffs I’m sure Ovechkin won’t care about missing the 50 goal mark.
