Ovechkin hits 50
And 51 and 52, come to think of it.
It's about time, too. After a seven-game goalless streak, Alex Ovechkin's now got four goals (and counting) in his last two games, and is on pace for a 64-goal campaign.
UPDATE And with four points tonight, rookie Nicklas Backstrom has passed Patrick Kane in the rookie scoring race.
A big night for Washington in a few ways so far.
UPDATE The final is a 10-2 win for the Capitals, but newcomer Sergei Fedorov goes pointless and finishes at minus-1.
