Capitals' Ovechkin reaches 800 career points

Saturday, 03.01.2014 / 4:45 PM / News

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- It takes more than 800 career NHL points to impress Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates.

"Ah, that's not a milestone," Oates said in response to a question about Alex Ovechkin's new career total after the Capitals beat the Boston Bruins 4-2 at TD Garden on Saturday.

Oates, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame with 1,420 career points, still knows that it's important for the Capitals' overall success to have Ovechkin pass every scoring pit stop as the season and the wing's career unfolds. Ovechkin reached 800 points with two power-play goals against the Bruins.

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player in NHL history to reach 700 goals when he scored at 3:31 of the second period Saturday in a 6-1 win against the New York Islanders.

Jagr skated in from the right circle and took a shot through traffic that deflected off the skate of Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald past goalie Evgeni Nabokov, giving the Devils a 2-0 lead.

"I never consider myself a goal-scorer," Jagr told MSG Network after the game in undoubtedly the understatement of the season, "so to reach 700 goals is big for me."

Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne had an easy night in his first rehab start, making 16 saves in the Milwaukee Admirals' 9-1 victory against the Iowa Wild in an American Hockey League game Friday.

Rinne played the entire game, the first time he had done so since Oct. 22 against the Minnesota Wild. He has played nine NHL games this season.

"I'm feeling really good," Rinne said, according to The Tennessean. "I'm happy I got to make a few good stops and play the full 60 minutes. I think that was the main goal, just get that game conditioning. It was quite an easy game for myself. I was telling some of the guys after the first period I was still tired even though I had just five shots."

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
