    I also want to say Ovie playing FortNite (and winning) makes me happy. My highest finish is 6th. :(

    This raises the question... is Alex next in line to play with Ninja, Drake, and Travis Scott?

    Only Laine is close and he appears to be injured. Malkin is 4 goals back, I don't think he can close the gap.

    So Ovechkin needs 6 goals in 9 games for 50 goals at 32 years old... I'm not one to doubt him but I think he needs a few multi-goal games or a hat trick to get it done. He also needs to be on the ice for every single empty net situation.

    I think 2 two goal games and 2 one goal games is realistic.

    They play at home: NYR, Carolina, Nashville and New Jersey
    They play on the road at: Detroit, Montreal, NYR, Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

    Nashville will be the toughest team to score against out of the remaining teams. I think he has a decent shot at 2 goal games against Detroit, Montreal, New Jersey and either of the NYR games.

    I really hope he can get to 50 goals but I am doubting it will happen. Please prove me wrong Ovie lol.

    One crazy IM BACK night and he's putting up a hatty and gets back on track...we've got some weak teams coming up. We'll see. Hope he wins the rocket more so than 50 but 50 would be killer!

    This is a great interview. Kuznetsov's answers are so candid and specific. Hopefully Ovechkin can make good on that predicition, but there's not much room for error. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's always seemed to me that he tends to tighten up from the pressure when he's close to a milestone or another mark he needs to hit...but he could always score two or three in the next game and go on a run.

    I recall him scoring a hat trick in the last game of the season to go from 47 to 50 two years ago.

    Beauty!!!

    I hope for the hardware first as well, but man eight 50 goal seasons would be a nice big fat cherry on top of his career stats.

    Hello everyone. While I don't normally cheer for the capitals I am always cheering for Ovechkin. He has always been my favourite player for as long as he has played. I'm looking to start collecting jerseys and what better place to start than with an OV jersey(although I do have multiple habs jerseys I have nothing from other teams). My question is what would be the best Ovechkin Jersey to get? I really like the Capitol building one but it is quite expensive everywhere I have found it. I figured I would get some opinions from the actual fanbase. Thanks in advance.

    I love the jersey that @Eazy for Kuzy posted along with the blue Stadium Series jersey from this year and the Winter Classic jersey from 2011. Hard pass for me on their current kit and the Winter Classic jersey from 2015.

    I like the 2015 Winter Classic, I liked the shade of red and the white stripes.

    To each his own! I thought it was the worst jersey I've seen the Caps play in.
