The Afternoon Number: Multiplication Mastery

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

A (slightly delayed) look at Alex Ovechkin's frequent bursts of offense

82 - Number of games in which Alex Ovechkin has scored two or more goals over the course of his career, most in the League since he entered it (and actually the most dating all the way back to February 19, 2001, three-plus seasons before Ovechkin's debut), and 25 more than second-place Jarome Iginla. Also of note, exactly half of those multi-goal games include at least one power-play and one even-strength goal.

Put another way, that's one full season's worth of multi-goal games, and more multi-goal games than 465 "active" skaters have played, period.

Of course, Ovechkin doesn't need a multi-goal game against Carolina tonight to hit milestone goal #400... but we'd certainly take it.
