Alex Ovechkin’s Top 5 Goals
By now, you’ve likely all seen Alex Ovechkin’s goal last night against the Devils. It got me thinking where that goal ranks among his career best.
For my Top 5, I didn’t consider the importance of the goal, but simply how impressive the goal was outside of the context of the game it was scored in. So, for example, his first playoff goal, the GWG against the Flyers that had my brother-in-law and I running up and down the aisles of Verizon Center, didn’t make the cut.
Here’s my top 5.
5) 11/20/2014 vs. Colorado Avalanche
4) 4/24/2009 vs. New York Rangers (I had forgotten about this one s/t to
3) 12/20/2014 vs. New Jersey Devils
2) 2/18/2009 vs. Montreal Canadiens
1) 1/16/2006 vs. Phoenix Coyotes (duh)
I think the first two are locks but there are definitely a few goals that were hard to cut out. What are your top 5 Ovechkin goals?
