Alexander The Great

PHILADELPHIA -- Did you see Alexander Ovechkin's ridiculous goal last night against the Canadiens? The guy is just not of this world. But it might only be No. 2 of his sensational career, eclipsed by his directly-to-the-Hall-of-Fame classic in 2006 at Phoenix. You can check out both of them below.

The Caps beat the reeling Habs in a shootout, 4-3, while the Rangers got well with a 3-1 win over the pathetic Islanders. So the standings look like this:

Philly is fourth at 69 points, followed by the Rangers (68), Montreal (67), Florida and Buffalo  (66). Carolina (61) remains ninth and Pittsburgh (60) is 10th. The Sabres can pull within a point of the Flyers with a regulation win tonight while watching the scoreboard as Montreal plays at Pittsburgh, Carolina is on Long Island and Chicago goes to Florida.
