Alex Ovechkin is a dangerous man anytime he steps on the ice against your favourite team, but if someone on your team accidentally hits Ovi in the face with a puck then it’s going to be a bad night for your team.
On Friday evening, Ovi recorded his 28th career hat-trick and the team behind the scenes for the broadcast had a little bit of deja vu and came up with a sweet stat.
Ovi took a puck to the face in Friday’s victory over the Florida Panthers and still went on to score three goals. Meanwhile, back in 2008, Ovi took a puck to the face and broke his nose, but went on to score four goals.
Basically, don’t make Ovi angry because he’s already on a mission to score as many goals as possible on a nightly basis.
