As mentioned above, Ovechkin recorded his 1,000th career point on January 21 on a goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Coming into this afternoon’s game, he has 1,013 points. He led the Caps in goals with 25 coming into today’s game, and third in goals in the NHL. Ovechkin is the Capitals’ all-time leader in both points and goals and sat at 80th all-time in league history coming into today’s game.
Congratulations Alex !
