Ovechkin described in one word the sniper record of the American striker in the NHL


MOSCOW, Apr 14Russian Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin believes that fans should like what Toronto Maple Leafs hockey players Auston Matthews and Edmonton Oilers Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are doing with the puck. Matthews broke the club record for the number of goals in one regular season NHL. The forward with 58 goals tops the list of the best scorers of the current season. McDavid leads the league in scoring with 108 points (42 goals + 66 assists), Draisaitl is third in the scorers list (102 points) and second in the scorers list (51 goals). Ovechkin is 12 goals behind Matthews on the scoring list with 46 goals. 11341743?q=toronto?autostart=false” width=”100%” height=”360″>“I think that (Matthews' scoring record) is amazing. Obviously he's one of the top players. Every time you see someone shoot 50 or 60 goals, it's very cool. His wrist shot is very hard and dangerous, but he's a center, he plays differently (than me), he has more puck control. What he, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl do with the puck is pretty cool,” Ovechkin said. “We both love the attacking game, he plays with amazing teammates who give him the puck and space. Obviously (he) is always a pleasure to watch. I'm happy for him and hopefully he will continue to play the way he is now.” Russian added.Toronto has nine games left this season. The Maple Leafs will take on the Washington Capitals on Thursday in Toronto. Matthews can hit 60 goals in a single season, the last time Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos did in 2011-12.
