Alex Ovechkin Scores 700th Goal Of NHL Career; Watch Historic Shot

by

Alex Ovechkin finally has done it.

The Washington Capitals left wing scored the 700th goal of his NHL career Saturday at Prudential Center during his team’s game against the New Jersey Devils. The Capitals were trailing 2-1 in the third period when Ovechkin rifled a one-timer into the Devils’ net, sparking a jubilant reaction from his teammates.

Ovechkin reached the 700-goal mark with remarkable speed.

 

He joins these hockey legends in the NHL’s 700 goals club.

Ovechkin scored his 698th goal Feb. 4, but an ensuing five-game goal-less run forced him to wait until last Thursday night to reach 699. However, he didn’t endure a similar holdup in pursuit of No. 700 as he scored it in Washington’s following game.
