Since Ovechkin’s rookie season, the Caps have scored 2695 goals (second-most in the League over that span) - including many scored in games in which he didn’t play - and he’s tallied a point on 1001 of them. As incredible as that number is, it’s equally amazing - if not more so - that 20.3% of those goals were scored by Ovechkin himself, picking up #545 and 546 last night against the Penguins.
