Something relatively unusual happened Saturday night in Edmonton: Alex Ovechkin had three assists. Ovi putting up a lot of points isn’t odd, but his three assist games don’t happen too often – at least in recent years.

It’s the 12th time he’s done it in a regular season game, plus twice in the playoffs. He also did it in the 2015 All Star game. Once, he had four assists.

Here are the games, results, and point totals:
