SPEAKING
``It's just a record. I'd rather talk about Alex (Mogilny) than the record. I know his career was shortened by injury. I didn't expect to ever get it. He had a great shot and amazing hands. Realistically, if he'd played more he'd have a lot more stats. He was a powerful forward, a scoring machine. ... Records are nice on a personal level, but most important was that we finally won a game.'' - Washington's Sergei Fedorov, after setting the scoring record for goals by a Russian-born player in a 6-5 overtime victory at Dallas. Fedorov scored twice, giving him 475 and breaking a tie with Alexander Mogilny (473), who retired in 2006.
