Alexander Ovechkin starts off season in grand fashion

Although Ovechkin was held scoreless in the Washington Capitals game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night, his back-to-back hat tricks (plus one goal) to start off the season were beyond impressive. Only three players have achieved such a feat before him, and all three of them did so in 1917.

Ovechkin’s seven goals over two games put him on pace for a 246 goal season (an absurd stat I know, but still fun to look at).  I’m not the only one who’s dazzled; take a look below.
