Ovechkin Makes History, Surpasses Gretzky in Empty Net Goals
The Washington Capitals were hosted by the Boston Bruins today for a late afternoon tilt at TD Garden. The Capitals won the game 3-0 thanks to goals from TJ Oshie, Dylan Strome, and an empty netter from Alex Ovechkin! That empty netter puts Ovechkin past Gretzky and at the top of the NHL for most empty net goals of all time with 57!
Impressive stat, and maybe he'll even break Gretzky's NHL goal record of 892 eventually! He's currently at 834.
