Capitals star Alex Ovechkin earned the 18th hat trick of his career Thursday in a 5-4 win against the Ottawa Senators.

And he did it in a span of less than seven minutes apart.


The Capitals trailed 3-1 in the third period when Ovechkin scored two back-to-back goals in just 1:23 to tie the game. He added his third goal with 9:12 left in the game.

The Capitals next play Saturday at Capital One Arena against the Montreal Canadiens.
