#1 What would Alex Ovechkin’s final goal total be?

The biggest question that has yet to be answered is the final goal total for Alex Ovechkin who sits just two away from 50 just prior to the season being paused.

Ovechkin not only led the league, tied with David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins for first in goals, he also was heating up before the season hit a pause button. Ovechkin scored eight goals in the 10 games prior to the league being shutdown.

With 13 games to go, there’s no doubt Ovechkin would’ve had another 50 goal season for the second year in a row. The Caps also had one more extra game than the Bruins, giving Ovechkin a legitimate chance of winning the Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophy.

The biggest question isn’t if Ovechkin would reach 50 goals or not. With 13 games remaining and two more to go, it’s virtually a slam dunk he reaches it. No the biggest question is how many goals would Ovechkin finish with.

I predict he would’ve finished with 56 goals and that would’ve been the highest since he scored that much in 2008-09, his age 23 season. Again, no player on the Caps is affected more on the pause than Ovechkin and we can’t wait till he’s back on the ice.

Those are our top 3 questions that remain to be answered. What are yours Caps fans? Let us know in the comments!
