Alex Ovechkin's 20th goal of the season was also his 750th of his illustrious NHL career. Ovechkin became the fastest NHLer to go from 700 to 750 goals as it took him only 78 games to do so, beating Gordie Howe, Jaromir Jagr and Wayne Gretzky. Ovechkin beat Daniil Tarasov for the goal and also scored earlier in his KHL career against Tarasov's dad Vadim who was a netminder for years in the Russian league. Ovechkin has 20 goals and 39 points in 25 contests to date.
