"You watch Ovechkin every night and figure his most spectacular goal will be the next one. The Capitals' star scored from his seat against Phoenix in 2006, but he notched an even prettier goal against Montreal in 2009 when he passed to himself off the boards, spun around defenseman Roman Hamrlik, went backhand to forehand, beat another defender and scored by chipping the puck over the goalie while practically prone on the ice. This was the first time in NHL history a player deserved an assist on his own goal. His eagerness to throw big hits and his animated goal celebrations make him worth the price of admission, even among the it's-free-it's-me YouTube generation."
