Last night, “Washington” in the NHL regular season match faced “Philadelphia”. The “pilots” achieved a victory over the opponent – 3:1, and the main character again became the leader of the “capital” Alexander Ovechkin.
The Russian scored his team’s only goal, scoring for the 30th time this season and the 810th of his career. He closed the gap on the league’s top scorer, Wayne Gretzky, to 84 goals.
Ovechkin has managed to score at least 30 goals in 17 seasons. According to this indicator, he met with the NHL record holder and former “Washington” player Mike Gartner.
Ovechkin also became the second player in the league to score at least 400 goals in home and away games after Gretzky.
