ST. LOUIS - Washington Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin became the 11th player in NHL history to score at least 50 goals in a season five times when he tallied on a power play in the first period Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues.
Ovechkin beat Blues goalie Ryan Miller with a one-timer from the left circle at 17:54 for his 50th goal overall and 23rd on the power play, both league highs.
This is Ovechkin's first 50-goal season since 2009-10 when he scored 50. His single-season high is 65 in the 2007-08 season.
