Caps F Alex Ovechkin sets NHL record for empty-net goals

Ovechkin

Alex Ovechkin is 60 goals from tying Wayne Gretzky for the most goals in NHL history, but the Washington Capitals star broke the Hall of Fame legend’s empty-net goal record on Saturday.

Capping a 3-0 win over the host Boston Bruins, Ovechkin scored his 57th career empty-net goal with 27 seconds left to snap a tie with Gretzky.

With his 12th goal of the season and fourth in his last four games, the 38-year-old Russian star has 834 goals, second only to Gretzky’s 894.

Ovechkin needed 1,394 games to break the empty-net mark, while Gretzky scored his 56 in 1,487 games.

Along with Saturday’s record, Ovechkin has the most power-play goals (304) and overtime goals (26) in NHL history.
