5/14/2012 Caps captain Alex Ovechkin addresses the media on breakdown day at KCI.
Ovi is leaving to the World's championship in 5 hours.
Ovechkin, 26, led the Capitals in scoring during the 2011-12 season with 65 points (38 goals, 27 assists) in 78 games played.
He finished the campaign ranked fifth in the NHL in goals and tied for the fifth-highest total in shots on goal (303).
Ovechkin has scored the most goals (339) and points (679) in the NHL since the 2005-06 season. He scored his 30th goal of the season on March 18 in Chicago and became the ninth player in NHL history to score 30 or more goals in his first seven seasons in the league.
The Caps captain also became just the third player in the league to have scored 30 or more goals in every season since 2005-06 (his rookie season).
Ovechkin’s 339 goals in his first seven seasons are the seventh-most in NHL history and he was the only player in the league to score 30 or more goals (38) and also dish out 200 or more hits (215) in 2011-12.
Ovechkin finished the postseason with nine points (five goals, four assists) in 14 games. His power-play goal in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals was the 30th playoff goal of his NHL career, coming in his 50th postseason game.
He's the first NHL player to score at least 30 goals in his first 50 Stanley Cup playoff games since Joe Sakic reached the 50-game mark with 33 goals in May 1997.
