CRN LogoAlex Ovechkin earned his 71st career multi-goal game Saturday, scoring his second of the game early in the third period, and his third with 4:47 remaining. The hat trick was the 11th of Ovechkin's career, leading Washington to a 5-1 win over New Jersey. Eric Fehr potted a short-handed goal less than four minutes into the third, and Troy Brouwer added his eighth goal of the season. 

All in all, a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Relive all the third period excitement below.
