Alex Ovechkin made hockey history on Tuesday night. The Great Eight tallied three times against the Chicago Blackhawks to hit 800 goals.

Due to the game being on national TV via ESPN, Capitals fans did not get Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin’s voices for the special moment.

Thankfully, the phenomenal John Walton called the game on the radio. His soundtrack to number 800 was utterly epic.

Walton’s call was added to video of the goal by Cristiano Simonetta.

Walton was joined by Alan May on the call in Chicago. He started off by casually describing play as the Caps filtered the puck into the offensive zone. John then kicked it into overdrive within seconds as Anthony Mantha turned over a Blackhawk defenseman behind the net, fed the puck in front to Evgeny Kuznetsov, and took a rebound shot before the puck eventually landed on Ovechkin’s tape.
