1000 Points!

I can't resist posting this video of the Great 8 scoring the 1000th point of his NHL career. What makes this clip even better is the announcing by John Walton, the radio voice of the Caps. "Good morning, good afternoon, and good night Pittsburgh!" Another angle of the #Ovech1Kin goal featuring @WaltonCaps' goal call.
