Shawn Thornton On Ovechkin’s Goals: ‘That’s Why They Pay Him’ (Video)

Alex Ovechkin continued to roll Saturday, scoring his 42nd and 43rd goals of the season as the Washington Capitals topped the Boston Bruins 4-2.

Ovechkin also collected his 800th career point on his second power-play tally of the afternoon in a game that the Caps never trailed. The Washington superstar led all players with nine shots on goal, and after the game, a couple of the B’s were impressed, although not surprised, with his offensive showing.
