Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals certainly felt no ill effects of a 10cm cut on his leg that he received in a game against Pittsburgh a few days earlier as he scored 4 goals to defeat the Ottawa Senators 8-6 in a wild high scoring game. Alex Ovechkin was playing in front of his parents who arrived in Ottawa to see the game. Obviously he was inspired most guys would of sat out the game. Now that's a professional athlete, did you see that Emery.
Ovechkin got his 30th goal of the season for his first career four-goal game on an empty net with 27.6 seconds remaining in the game. Ottawa hung around and almost sent it to overtime but to no avail we'll have to get them in there own building on New Years Day.
