Video: Alex Ovechkin notches 800th career point in style

Mar 1, 2014, 5:16 PM EST

Alex Ovechkin‘s career has been a special one already, but he hit a plateau against the Boston Bruins this afternoon.

Ovechkin scored two power-play goals as the Caps rolled to a 4-2 win against the Bruins. His second goal of the game turned out to be special because it was his 800th career point. Check out the video of his tally courtesy of CSNWashington.com:

Of Ovechkin’s 800 points, 414 of those are goals.

After the game, Caps coach Adam Oates, he of the 1,420 point Hall of Fame career, had some fun commenting on Ovechkin hitting a large, round number.

Ba-zing!

    Having been at the game today and being a Bruins Fan it’s amazing how much talent Ovechkin really has. He has the best shot I’ve ever seen. Congrats to Ovi on the 800 pts

    • joey4id - Mar 1, 2014 at 6:28 PM

      What else did you see today besides his great shot? He’s a good skater as all the players in the NHL are, and he a very good body checker. What else?

      • stakex - Mar 1, 2014 at 7:45 PM

        With 75% of the season over, he has 11 more goals than anyone else in the best league in the world…. what more do you need?

      • blomfeld - Mar 1, 2014 at 10:00 PM

        he’s also taken 75% more shots than anyone else in the league and his team is still struggling just to make the playoffs ! … go figure eh ?

  2. canucks30 - Mar 1, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    Has he been past the second round of the playoffs yet?

    No?

    YAWN

    • joey4id - Mar 1, 2014 at 6:29 PM

      Yawn!

      • blomfeld - Mar 1, 2014 at 10:02 PM

        ditto that ! :)

      • capsfan14 - Mar 2, 2014 at 10:40 AM

        The fact that you negativley comment on every Ovi post here shows that you know nothing about hockey, that you are a sad attempt at a troll, and that you recognize the pure skill of Ovechkin, but you’re jealous because he’s not Canadian. Go ahead, I’m awaiting your “But he’s not a born captain!!” response. Pathetic…

      • joey4id - Mar 2, 2014 at 10:51 AM

        Capsfan, if you actually believe what you wrote about me, and the fact that you took the time to write what you did is in itself pathetic.

        Blomfeld, please deal with this capsfan.

        Joey knows hockey. ;-)

        *** earlier today at a sporting goods store ***

        Capsfan: hi asshole … listen, do you sell hockey equipment here ?

        Blomfeld: reckon we do …

        Capsfan: well gimme a signed OVI hockey stick right now asshole !

        Blomfeld: here ya go …

        Capsfan: what’s this ? … it’s a branch from a tree ?

        Blomfeld: yeah, and it’s signed for you too …

        Capsfan: look asshole, there’s obviously a mistake here !

        Blomfeld: you made it … KAPOW !! .. KABOOM !! .. KAZAAM !!!!!

      • capsfan14 - Mar 2, 2014 at 4:23 PM

        I believe every word of it. The things you write about Ovi proves that you know hockey about as well as a squirrel, and the fact that you need blomfeld to back you up (nobody else does) with completley useless non-hockey related videos and unclever comments that lack both humor (which he so desperatly tries to display) and credibility, should make you question what you are doing on this site, and what you really know about hockey.

      • joey4id - Mar 2, 2014 at 4:43 PM

        blomfeld’s comments and videos are very pertinent and credible. It takes more that a squirrel brain to understand them. His comments are too cleverly written for your squirrel like brain. Go play with your nuts. :-)

      • capsfan14 - Mar 2, 2014 at 4:51 PM

        Wow you’re both comedians. Never in my life have I laughed harder than Blomfelds clever videos and jokes, and now you prove that not only should you be a GM for every team in the NHL but that you should also be a stand up comedian… Keep ‘em coming Joey!!

  3. canucks30 - Mar 1, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    With that being said, he’s a remarkable talent and one of the most dynamic offensive tablets in NHL history.

    • canucks30 - Mar 1, 2014 at 5:26 PM

      *talents

  4. bruinsfan55 - Mar 1, 2014 at 5:33 PM

    He’s awesome in the regular season but never makes it far in the playoffs and I don’t believe ever will

    • joey4id - Mar 1, 2014 at 6:31 PM

      thumbs down = knowing nil about hockey

    • ravenscaps48 - Mar 1, 2014 at 6:42 PM

      Over a point per game in the playoffs… you’re right. ALL Ovie’s fault!

      • blomfeld - Mar 1, 2014 at 10:09 PM

        what’s the point of trying to climb a mountain if you know there’s never going to be a chance of you making it to the top ? … does that mean it’s nothing more for you than ‘exercise’ for you people ? …

        Blomfeld … an ardent, sexy and values-driven supporter of the SC Champion LA Kings

    • c9castine - Mar 1, 2014 at 6:53 PM

      im not big fan ov ovechkin but pretty unfair to diminish Ovechkin’s offensive production by saying he hasn’t been past the second round of the playoffs. Cant put that all on one man. He went toe to toe with Sidney Crosby one time and at the end of the series the Pens walked all over the Caps to win it because they had the team built to win.

      he does have some shortcomings in his game and should never be counted on to be the rock to stand on to win a cup. But I have respect for his scoring accomplishments so congrats to him.

    • stakex - Mar 1, 2014 at 8:36 PM

      I must have missed the day that hockey became an individual sport……….

      Seriously, you can’t fault the guy when the so-so teams the Caps keep fielding get beat by much better teams. Over the last few years, even during the run and gun days of BB, the Caps never had a Cup capable team. They looked great during the regular season beating the hell out of the South Least division, but their defense/goaltending/secondary scoring were always big question marks… and those are the three most important aspects for a cup contender.

      Once the Caps have a team that’s actually on par with the likes of Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Boston and are still not winning….. then we can talk about Ovechkin’s ability to get a team to the Cup.

  5. joey4id - Mar 1, 2014 at 6:42 PM

    How can a talented player have 65 pts and be -18? Carlson who averages more time on ice per game and has played more games than Ovi has 26 pts and is -1. Hmmmm!

  6. rockthered1286 - Mar 1, 2014 at 6:52 PM

    800 points?! Psh. Who cares. His defense is awful, therefore he sucks. He could score 1,500 points and he’d still suck solely because he’s not a great 2 way player. Pathetic.

  7. 101starmymedic - Mar 1, 2014 at 7:11 PM

    All he does to score is blast the puck on one-timers, how often does he actually score with moves or dekes? Rarely. He is a one-trick pony. He skates around the ice, rarely playing defense, and just looking for a chance to score.

    He is a one-dimensional player. He’s overrated. Case in point, his +/- is terrible. Stats don’t lie. He might as well have 782 points. He doesn’t earn them either, he doesn’t play hard, he just skates around looking for people to get then give him the puck, rarely does he go and get the damn thing himself.

    Sweet snipe

  9. muckleflugga - Mar 1, 2014 at 7:38 PM

    one trick pony … unreal … know much about hockey …?

    a one trick pony that mows down everything in his path

    it seems to me the object of the game and the object of a team’s marquee offensive player is to score goals … ovechkin does just that … with panache and style

    who’s even close … the sainted one is sucking ovechkin’s tailpipes yet again

    as for plus minus … a stat for the anal retentive … how can you grade individual performance on a stat measuring competence of six players that includes bad breaks and bad bounces

    if crosby had made this milestone we’d be treated to aaron ward and jeff oneill and glenn healey and scott oake blowing their loads for a week

    pierre mcguire would be near death in intensive care from drooling induced dehydration

    ovi rocks hockey … he’s russian

    get used to it

    • handsofsweed - Mar 1, 2014 at 8:09 PM

      Ovi is a hell of a goal-scorer, for sure. But Sid has a 17 point lead on him in the scoring race with two games in hand. There is an extremely high probability that Crosby finishes at least 25 points ahead of Ovechkin. Let that sink in for a minute.

      For their careers, Sid is sitting at 745 points despite playing 129 less games than Ovi. Sucking tailpipes, huh?

    • joey4id - Mar 2, 2014 at 3:49 PM

      Ovi is so talented and creative that I always wonder how he’s going the beat the opposition on the PP. Every time I think he’s going to be somewhere he’s at the top of the face off circle to the right of the goalie. He gets me all the time. Grrrrrrr! ;-) Such a brilliant player. Crosby, Toews, Tavars have nothing on this guy.

  10. joey4id - Mar 1, 2014 at 9:39 PM

    From the franchise’s $10 million player and captain you expect leadership, unselfishness, and 200 feet hockey. Clearly three elements missing in Ovi’s game. You novice hockey minds only see the obvious. 11 more goals than anyone else….. Wow! Citing the obvious needs very little brain power. Good job, stakex.

  11. blomfeld - Mar 1, 2014 at 10:32 PM

    Person A: I think that Ovechkin is ‘fabulous’ and that he’s worth every penny of his salary !

    Person B: oh yes, his return on value is something just ‘to die’ for !

    Person C: and I just abhor all these losers going on about the need to ‘actually’ winning a SC !

    Person D: I hear ya girlfriend ! … same thing with this ‘plus/minus’ trash ! … what a joke !

    Person E: well I’ll tell ya one thing … Ovi seriously ‘rocks’ my world ! :)

    *** meanwhile, approximately 100 yards distance from the right ***

    • joey4id - Mar 2, 2014 at 3:56 PM

      Person F: +/- means nothing. Patrice Bergeron in Boston is +25. Means nothing…. Bergeron is not a very good defensive player, and has won Lord Stanley and Olympic Gold. +\- is indeed trash.

  12. noffy32 - Mar 2, 2014 at 8:23 AM

    It only took a few years for Sidney to move out of Lemieux’s house after being his whipping boy before he got any better and Ovie has not had the team around him like Sid has had in the past. Glass jaw Sid has to get a bit tougher as Ovie would pound him senseless.

      What’s your point, son?
