    I ended up going with the Capitol building jersey. It's on the way.

    It really came down to this one, winter classic 2015 or the screaming eagle.

    I might get an Ovechkin Reebok home or a World cup Russia jersey as a gift from someone too so it's a win win and a great start to my collection.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Hope he can hit 50 before the end of the season. I'll be cheering for the Caps come playoff time!

    Slumpy Mcslumperson. Basically needs a hat trick in one game and a two goal game or a pair of one goal games. Not likely but I have learned to never count Ovie out.

    Ovie now has tied Bobby Hull for 5th all time for goals with one franchise with his 604th goal.

    The only players with more are:
    Howe - 786
    Yzerman - 692
    Lemux - 690
    Sakic - 625

    So glad he’s with this franchise. :)

    Seems almost a forgone conclusion he easily passes Yzerman....Howe definitely in reach with a 2-3 year extension....

    Ovie now 59th all time in points with 1,122, passing Darryl Sittler.

    Also, scored his 102nd GWG to pass Iginla for 8th all time.

    And he'll take none, because #8 should retire in a Caps jersey. I regret so much to have said that I wanted him traded last summer. I want him to stay forever, because we'll never get a player like him again. Ovi is head and shoulders above every other Cap all time.

    With the playoffs starting on Thursday, Ovie can continue to work on his playoff resume. He needs 4 goals to reach 50 career playoff goals and 6 to reach 50 career playoff assists. 10 more points to 100 points, as well.

    He has never scored a playoff OT goal. He’s due.

    Most of all, he needs to hoist that silver trophy that was donated by Lord Stanley so many years ago.

    This is normal.
    Look at what did NJ has done in the last 5 minutes of the game, and you X this by 1000.
    The opponent is looking for Ovi all the time, Kuzya and Wilson need to take advantage of that.

    That doesn't really mean anything. Jason Chimera has a playoff OT goal for the Caps.

    It’s not a knock on him. I just really want to see him score one and I want to see the epic celebration. :D

    It's alright, last summer was pretty emotional for everyone. I personally have been and always will be of the school of thought that Ovechkin should be a Capital until the day he no longer wants to be. He is the best player this franchise will ever have and even though playoff success hasn't come as we all hoped, he has made hockey a thing in this market. Ovechkin is the Washington Capitals and this franchise will never be the same when he's gone.

    Two huge goals in the deciding Game 6. Ovie stepped up big time.

    Now has 51 career playoff goals and 98 points.

    Ovie with a nice assist on the GWG. The assist was the 50th of his playoff career.

    With his 104th point, he is now 84th all time in playoff scoring.

    If I could find a place that'd sell screaming eagles I'd have a Kolzig one by now. Legit the only jersey I don't have and it makes me sad.

    Btw, take a look at this video starting around 2:15



    Clearly Ovechkin and Backstrom aren't on the same page.

    Ovie with a strong game in Game 1 of the ECF.

    With his goal and assist he is now 78th all time in playoff scoring and 44th in goals scored.

    Ovie also took his 500th shot in the playoffs which is 26th all time.

    There were reports in media that Caps core have had difficulties analyzing the last years defeat. Some rough sms texting was done. And then Ovi and Backstrom became no close and no comrades. Maybe even don't want to play on the same line.

    This is the proof.

    Yeah I've heard of it but idk honestly. They are all people thats for sure, they are arguying etc. Still, i have no idea what happened (or if it happened at all) exactly between 19 and 8. Speaking about this video: what do you mean by a "proof"? their hug wasn't full of love or what?
