Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin nets 600th career National Hockey League goal

Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin nets 600th career National Hockey League goal

Evgeny Kuznetsov scored the OT victor.

By the time he scored the 599th goal of his career, Ovechkin sensed it, too.

Ovechkin celebrated the milestone with his shot past Connor Hellebuyck in the second period of Monday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin has become the 20th player in NHL history to reach 600 career goals, further cementing his status as one of the league's all-time best offensive talents.

"Of course it's special", Ovechkin told reporters after the game.

"That's huge. When you look at those numbers, you don't even think it's 599, 600", Kuznetsov said. "I knew if I'm gonna have another one, I'm gonna score". The main difference between those three and Ovechkin is they played the bulk of their careers in a significantly higher scoring era.

"I just have to put the puck in and do my job", Ovechkin said after scoring his 40th goal of the season at the Stadium Series game in Annapolis on March 3. "But it's all a part of this process and he's not fazed by it". "Forty is nice, but 50 is better".

Home Minister Rajnath Singh has expressed grief over the loss of lives of police personnel in Sukma blast. A few days later on April 24, 25 personnel of the paramilitary were killed in a similar ambush in Sukma.

"It's very, very unique and unusual for a player of Alex's vintage to be staring 50 goals in the face", Leonsis said.

His wife, Nastya, had flown back from Moscow just in time.

Ovechkin got two lengthy standing ovations from the crowd that has been dazzled by his accomplishments since he made his debut in 2005. No. 600 came 3 minutes, 53 seconds into the second period and marked his 42nd goal this season, which leads the National Hockey League. "I was there when he made history, so I can maybe watch that someday and show I was there on the ice". "I can't score 20 in a year". "I don't have a good overtime the last 10 games probably. It's 600 now, you have to score another to make 601".

NOTES: Capitals G Philipp Grubauer stopped 26 shots in his third consecutive start over No. 1 goaltender Braden Holtby, who is 1-5-2 with a 4.83 goals-against average and.854 save percentage in his past eight games.

"When he came in (he was) a hitter nearly - a shooter and a hitter", Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said.

Jets: Visit the Central Division-leading Nashville Predators on Tuesday night. "Tomorrow it's a new day and back to work".
