The Noon Number: 59 - Number of shots on goal Alex Ovechkin registered in a dozen February games, his highest 12-game total since March, 2011. At an average of 4.9 per game, that would be the fifth-highest mark of his career, an increase of more than one per game over last season, and enough to comfortably lead the League this year.
