Only one player in the history of the NHL has scored more goals than Washington Capitals’ future Hall of Famer, Alex Ovechkin.
On Friday night against the Winnipeg Jets, Ovechkin tallied goal No. 801, tying the great Gordie Howe for second on the all-time list. At 18:22 into the first period, Ovechkin took a drop pass from Dylan Strome a stride inside the blue-line before firing a wrister by Jets’ goaltender David Rittich.
