Game tying and game winning goals 12 seconds apart by Ovi
Ovi, Green, Backie and Neuvy on the 7-2 win over Calgary
Captain Ovechkin ties the game, 2:2 and then scores a go ahead goal 3:2.
Here's the NHL.com headline: "Ovechkin sparks Caps' six-goal second period". It is only partially true, I think it was Mike Green who did that. If not, at least he showed how valuable he is for the Caps.
All 'Young guns' got involved the the victory vs. Calgary. And this is what can make Caps to go far, far in the playoffs.
Here's the strum: BOOGBSS :=)
Ovechkin scored a game tying goal and a game winning goal within a one minute, 12 seconds apart. It is his personal record, and it might be the NHL record as well.

Before the game:
VogsCaps: Great atmosphere here in Calgary already. Kids chanting "O-vech-kin!" at morning skate. Hockey Night in Canada crew out in full force.
VogsCaps: And just now, Ovi comes out to loud cheers and goes to sign a few autographs for the group of about 100 before the bus heads back to hotel.

In the third Ovi fell and hit the boards with his knees first. He had a trouble to get up and go to the bench. Bruce Boudreau didn't play the first line of Ovechkin, Backstrom and Semin after that.
