Alex Ovechkin became the NHL’s first 50-goal scorer this season when he got his second of the game at 9:49 of the third period of the Washington Capitals’ home game against the Atlanta Thrashers on Friday night.
Ovechkin got No. 49 when he took a pass from Alexander Semin after a giveaway and one-timed a blast from about 30 feet that beat goaltender Ondrej Pavelec cleanly at 16:04 of the middle period, tying the game 2-2. He reached the 50-goal mark for the fourth time in his five NHL seasons when he took a feed from Semin in the high slot and whipped a wrister past Pavelec, triggering a celebration at the sold-out Verizon Center.
