    • First there was The Captain's goal... [Capitals Voice (audio)]

[Rink, Capitals Voice (audio), NHL Arena Cam, RMNB; per Elias: "It was Ovechkin's fourth two-goal game this season and the 80th multiple-goal game of his NHL career. In the last 20 years the only other NHL player to reach 80 multi-goal games as quickly as Ovechkin (620 games) was his fellow Russian, Pavel Bure, who did so in March 2001 in his 586th career game."]
