Ovechkin now has 713 goals. Needs 5 more to pass Phil Esposito for 6th on the all time list.
Sidney Crosby is in Covid protocol and out tonight for the battle of Pennsylvania.
Pittsburgh beats Philadelphia 4-3 this afternoon. A much needed win after the worst loss for any team this season, on Thursday to the Flyers.
They were up 3-0 at 3:57 of the first period, scoring 3 goals in 1:11s, only to lose 4-3 to Philadelphia at the end.
With Brian Burke as President/ Ron Hextall as GM and Chris Pryor as director of player personal/Head Scouting ,Pittsburgh is in good hands and will build another Championship caliber team in the near future.
Beyond impressive goal from Matthew Barzal !
The Penguins maintain possession long enough in an equal strength situation to make 21 passes (!) before Kasperi Kapanen makes a sweet move and scores:
It may be a record.
Thanks for the video Don.
Ovechkin has goal 716 tonight, is two away from passing Phil Esposito for number six on the all time list.
Wayne Gretzky 894
Gordie Howe 801
Jaromir Jagr 766
Brett Hull 741
Marcel Dionne 731
Phil Esposito 717
Alexander Ovechkin 716
Ovechkin is a stud He will smash that record. All of these guys are the cream of the crop. It's funny as the NBA always tries to say it has the best athletes in the world. It's not even
close. I could name so many sports that are much more difficult athletically with hockey being one of them. Most of the primadonnas in the nba could never last long on the ice. This
separates the men from the boys!
Sidney Crosby reached the 1,300 career point mark tonight. He's the 8th fastest in league history to get there, though it took him roughly twice as many games as Gretzky and Lemieux, which is partly a reflection of the high-flying, high-scoring era in which those two greats played.
Pittsburgh and Washington are falling apart between the pipes. The East will be won by the team with the best net minder during the first two rounds of the playoffs.
Don are you going to catch any of the NCAA frozen four being played in Pittsburgh next week?
It's had virtually no publicity here, hopefully it'll pick up this week. I don't follow college hockey so not much interest.
I was surprised to see the Pens-Sabres game being televised nationally by NBC given how bad the Sabres are. Turning it on just now, I see why. It's a "joint Pride game," meaning both teams are wearing the rainbow colors on everything, even their warm-up uniform numbers, along with "special" versions of the U.S. and Canadian national anthems (I didn't realize Buffalo is in Canada). By "joint" it's essentially a forced propaganda event by NBC and Bettman. Players on both teams had to read prepared statements welcoming the "LBGT+ community" or whatever it's called now, with the letters always changing.
This crap is just as bad as MLB shifting the All Star Game. They're not "fighting discrimination," they're forcing an ideological agenda on people that just want to watch a sports event. My choice is not to watch it. Golf's on CBS so golf it is. Or better yet, there's lots of yard work to do.
At least Pitt won the propaganda game 3-2 over Buffalo. The Sabres hit the post near the end of game.
Tonight Patrick Marleau ties Gordie Howe for the NHL All-Time Iron Man at 1767 games played. He will set the record on Monday April 19 when SanJose plays at Vegas.
Marleau was one of the 3 or 4 fastest men in the NHL during his younger days, while being 6-2/215. For a speed athlete to avoid injury for 23 NHL seasons is unreal.
Alex Ovechkin is up to 730 goals, two more and he passes Marcel Dionne for fifth all time.
Looking forward to the playoffs in May and June.
Disappointed every League is tripping over itself virtue signaling! Even Hockey falls Victim to Globohomo.
