    Nahh, let's allow the Islanders to own the honor of being the team that Ovi scores 700 against. Please.

    I want him to just do it ASAP because it's being talked about so much, you know he wants to be done with it.

    Plus, then he relaxes a bit and the floodgates open.

    Well, see you on Thursday for your hat trick against the Avs, Ovi.

    NHL.com needs to chill the f*ck out with the Ovi doesn’t score headlines for every game the Caps play. We can watch highlights and check a box score to see for ourselves.

    Also Ovi hardly wants all the extra attention until he actually hits the milestone. I know he doesn’t exactly get intimidated but even he must be squeezing his stick tight with all the media buzz right now.

    It doesn’t matter if he, or any fans don’t like the media buzz, it’s a huge deal deserving of the attention. We are about to see something that's only happened 7 times in the entire history of the league.

    Completely agree. So go nuts once he hits it - the media should have a field day. But every game he doesn't score do we really need to see the headline "Ovechkin doesn't score in Caps..."?

    I love all the publicity surrounding Ovi. A few years ago I felt he was arguably the greatest goal scorer in NHL history. In 2020 there is now no argument, especially when adjusting for era and the like. It has been cool to be able to watch the entire career of such an amazing hockey player. All the buzz and anticipation is warranted. Great stuff for the NHL to promote.

    Would have driven 10 hours to Washington on Monday if Ovechkin sat at 699 after the Phily game.

    I really hope he scores on a breakaway and does not shoot at an empty net

    I hope he throws the puck toward the net and it bounces in off of Andre Burakovsky’s butt. ;)

    Burakovsky would probably like that too. He'd probably talk a selfie of the bruise and post it on twitter along with the scoring summary showing him as having the primary assist.

    What? This literally makes no sense.

    Do you mean Ovie is to Lemieux what LeBron is to Jordan?

    Ovechkin career vs Colorado: 19 games-8 goals.
    Last 5 games vs Avs: 2 goals.
    10/19/19: Goal (Grubauer)
    2/7/19: 0 (Varlamov)
    11/16/18: Goal (Grubauer)
    12/12/17: 0 (Varlamov)
    11/16/17 0 (Varlamov)

    Ovechkin has never had a multi goal game vs Colorado.

    For sure sometime, but he's declining, i mean no goals in last 2 games. He'll be lucky to reach 45 goals this season.

    *SARCASM meter is ON in case someone really is taking me seriously* haha

    I'll be at the game and I think it would be really freaking cool to see some hockey history in person.

    A 5-2 win for the Avs with Ovi getting two would be an awesome night in the Can.

    Its common for players to get stuck on these milestones, hope he gets it soon and goes on a tear after to win another Rocket.

    You realize there's 7 players with 700+ goals already? He's not even passing anybody once he hits 700. What history is being seen?
