Oh NOVI Didn't Part 300!

just another day at the office

Ovi played Babe Ruth tonight as he pointed towards the goal with his magic stick and blasted his 300th goal past Toronto net-minder Reimer! This puts Ovechkin into some super sweet company making him the 6th youngest NHL player EVER to make the milestone – with Gretzky, Lemieux, Hawerchuk, Bossy, Yzerman and now Ovechkin. A face only I could love? Maybe! A player only I could love, I think not!

  1. The radio announcer said last night that of Ovi’s 300 goals, 98 are on the power play. That’s pretty incredible.

    Not incredible? Ovi in a towel. Even multiple towels. But I do like red Gatorade.
