The Noon Countdown: Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

Counting down the days to the 2015-16 season with a look at Ovechkin's game-winning abilities

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

11 - Number of days remaining until the 2015-16 season. But it's also...

...the number of game-winning goals scored by Alex Ovechkin in 2014-15, tying the career high he set in 2007-08 (and repeated in 2010-11). Ovechkin led the League in that department last season, the third time in his career that he's either led or been tied for the lead in game-winners.

Over the course of his career, he's racked up a whopping 80 game-winning goals, tops among all players since his rookie season and beating out second-ranked Daniel Sedin by 18 goals over that span.
