Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin scored in the NHL regular season game with the Buffalo Sabers, bringing the total number of goals in the league to 813.
The Russian ranks second in the list of the best scorers in the history of the NHL, behind only the Canadian Wayne Gretzky, who has 894 goals.
This goal was Ovechkin’s first for the capital club since January 27, when he scored against Pittsburgh. Recall that the hockey player missed several matches due to the death of his father. In addition, the Russian has scored 40 or more goals for nine NHL clubs. This allowed him to overtake Marcel Dionne, who scored 40+ goals against eight teams. Ahead is Phil Esposito, who has had ten such clubs in his career.
However, the goal did not help “Washington” to win. “Buffalo” won with a score of 7:4. For the “Capitals” this defeat was the seventh in the last eight games.
