Alex The "8"...Simply Sensational!!!


When even Wayne Gretzky can be blown away by the sight of Alex Ovechkin, wouldn't you think the hockey world ought to be paying SOME attention to what we Capitals fans (in the DC and surrounding areas, as well) already know???

He has 240 through his 38 games played. If he keeps that pace, he'd be at 480 for 76 games, leaving just 20 needed in the last four games.500 shots is ...…
