WASHINGTON -- No matter how many goals Alex Ovechkin scores, his teammates still get a thrill out of watching him put the puck in the net.
That was the case Friday, when Ovechkin scored his League-leading 40th goal of the season and the Washington Capitals rallied to defeat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 at Verizon Center.
"That's just incredible," center Nicklas Backstrom said of Ovechkin, his longtime linemate. "He never stops impressing me. We're happy for him. He's a big key for this team, so hopefully he can just keep it going."
