Alex Ovechkin piled up even more milestones in Wednesday’s opening night game against the New York Rangers, besides scoring the goal to tie Marcel Dionne and the goal to pass Marcel Dionne for 5th place on the all time goals list. The two goals also marked Ovechkin’s 150th multi-goal game in his NHL career.
Ovechkin now ranks fourth in NHL history, only behind Wayne Gretzky (189), Brett Hull (158), and Mario Lemieux (154).

Ovechkin’s goals on Wednesday night also marked the first time an NHL player had both a power play goal and a short handed goal in a season opener.

Ovechkin also earned his 500th power play point which came on his assist to T.J. Oshie’s first period goal. The assist also leaves him just nine assists shy of reaching 600 assists for his career.

Thats a lot of milestones for one game, but something we’re getting used to as we watch Ovechkin climb the ranks of hockey’s greatest of all time.
