Many of you have probably seen the above TV commercial in which Alex Ovechkin scores nine goals in one game and dubs it an “Ovechtrick.” Well, we here at JQP Productions are happy to report that Alex did indeed complete an “Ovechtrick” last night in the Capitals’ overtime loss to the Flyers. Kind of. Sort of. Ovechkin’s goal in the third period was his ninth goal… in 36 games since November 1. Ovie Ovie Ovie…oi oi oi!

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! What a game, what a game! Yesterday, I said things like, “I’ma watch the Washington Capitals lay down the hurt.” Yesterday, I said things like, “The Stars don’t stand a chance.” Yesterday, I was like Fonzie. I was wrrrr. I was wrrrrr. I was wrrrrr. Yesterday, I wrong. Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away. Yesterday the Dallas Stars troubles seemed so far away. Yesterday, the Dallas Stars won their first game since the Olympic break because Marty Turco may have played the greatest regular-season game of his career. But Marty Turco wasn’t the only story of this game. There was quite a bit of weird and wild stuff going on. Read More »

(VS 7PM ET) I’m sorry hoop heads, I just can’t do Championship Week. If there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing, Championship Week is it. Wake me when the Madness starts. Until then, I’ma gonna watch me some hockey. I’ma watch me some onesided, lopsided, landslided, Jekyll and Hyded hockey. I’ma watch the Washington Capitals lay down the hurt. The Capitals lead the NHL in scoring. The next closest team is 50 goals back. Yowza! They have the top power play in the league and are tops in the league in shooting percentage. Sweet sassy molassy! The Stars don’t stand a chance. Dallas has allowed 17 goals in the last three games while Washington has scored three or more in 23 of the last 24. And to make matters worse, Jose Theodore is on a 12-0-2 roll himself and will probably be between the pipes. Get your popcorn ready!

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Just a quick one. A did like that, did it like this, did it with a hockey stick one. No, sports fans, the juggernaut Washington Capitals did not win last night, but they did do something of note. Even though the Caps lost 6-5 in Ottawa, one night after their 14-game winning streak came to an end with a 6-5 overtime loss in Montreal, they managed a hat trick out of yet another player. Last night Alexander Semin scored three goals following hat tricks by Alex Ovechkin and Brooks Laich. How about that? How about this? That marks the first time that Washington has ever had players record hat tricks in each of three or more consecutive team games. It also marks the first time it’s happened since the Flames, back in 1992, tied the NHL record with individual hat tricks in four straight games. Back then, Sergei Makarov, Joe Nieuwendyk, Theoren Fleury and Gary Leeman turned the tricks. Pretty neat, huh?

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! What’s this? Three Ovechkin posts in four days? Well, when you done do what this cat is done doing, you get three post in three days. What this cat done did yesterday was notch his first regular season hat trick in almost a year. What this cat done did was notch his first regular season hat trick in almost a year, leading the Caps to a come-from-behind victory that extended their winning streak to 14 games and ended any jibber-jabber about who is hockey’s best. Might as well face it, this is Alexander Ovechkin’s world and everybody else is just skating in it. Read More »

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! The Boston Celtics had Bird, Parrish and McHale. The Montreal Canadiens had Larry Robinson, Serge Savard and Guy Lapointe. Meet the new big three. If you wanna know the real deal about the three, well let me tell you, they’re triple trouble ya’ll. I’m gonna bring you up to speed. I’m gonna bring you up to speed about the Washington Capitals’ top three scorers: Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom. Last night, all three of those cats put the biscuit in the basket in the Caps’ 5-2 victory over the Thrashers. Hooray capitals! You know what that makes those three cats? Huh? Do ya? That makes them the highest scoring trio of all NHL teammates. That’s what that makes them. That makes them a good bet to to set the NHL record for consecutive wins. The Capitals have now won 13 straight, four short of matching the longest run in NHL history. They have done that by being carried squarely on the backs of the new Big Three.

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! By now we all should know this is Alexander Ovechkin’s world and everybody else is just skating in it. He cannot be stopped. Heck, he cannot even be contained. Couldn’t be contained last night. Two big last night. The second one doing his best Major Zamora imitation then flying to the outside while nut-megging Michal Rozsival. Yowza! Ovechkin, who is 24 years, 141 days young, just reached the 500-point plateau in his 373rd regular-season game. Ovie! Ovie! Ovie Oi! Oi! Oi Oy veh! Ovechkin is now the youngest player to reach that milestone since Jaromir Jagr reached that milestone nine days after his 24th birthday. And just so you know, Ovie needed fewer games to score 500 points than any player since Eric Lindros. How about that? Read More »

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Rookie rookie who gets the cookie? Simeon, that’s who. Simeon’s the big winner. Simeon wins. The best thing that ever happened to this Capitals team was Jose Theodore soiling the bed in Game One against the Rangers. Last night, Washington forced a decisive seventh game with a 5-4 overtime win at Pittsburgh. Last night, Simeon Varlamov won his fourth potential elimination game of the playoffs. Big deal? So what? I’ll tell you so what. I’ll tell you Little Lord Varlamov is one of only seven goaltenders to win each of the first four career playoff starts in which his team faced elimination. I’ll also tell you he’s the first to do so as a rookie since Chico Resch won each of his first seven for the Islanders in 1975. You can Ovie! Ovie! Ovie! Oi! Oi! Oi! all you like. If not for Simeon Varlamov, the Caps would be toast.
