Moscow, December 24 – Washington Capitals coach Peter Laviolette said team captain Alexander Ovechkin is nervous about getting close to Gordie Howe in scoring in the National Hockey League (NHL).
Ovechkin has 800 regular season goals for the NHL and is third on the all-time leading scorer list, one behind second-ranked Howe. Earlier, the son of Canadian hockey player Mark Howe said that Ovechkin looked “a little nervous” in the match against the “Detroit Red Wings” (4: 3), in which the Russian could not outperform.
Ovechkin is a graduate of Dynamo Moscow, with whom he won the Gagarin Cup in 2013. The striker became a three-time world champion as part of the Russian national team. In 2018, he won the Stanley Cup with Washington.
