Summary

But with a League-leading 45 goals heading into the Capitals' game against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on "Wednesday Night Hockey" (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVAS), the 33-year-old forward knows the eighth 50-goal season of his 14-season NHL career is within his reach."When you have a chance to score 50, it's always nice," Ovechkin said. He has 16 games remaining this season to score the five goals he needs to get to 50 for the first time since 2015-16 and move within one of Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy, who share the NHL record with nine 50-goal seasons each.No other player has more than six 50-goal seasons."He's been fantastic," said Bossy, now an analyst for TVA Sports. He celebrated good, but the way he worked out in the summer time, that's paid dividends."The No. 1 pick in the 2004 NHL Draft, Ovechkin scored 50 goals in four of his first five seasons, including 52 as a rookie in 2005-06 and a career-high 65 in 2007-08. So, it's awesome and it's something that people will remember his name probably forever."Ovechkin is the first player in NHL history with 10 seasons of at least 45 goals and is closing in on winning the Rocket Richard Trophy as the League's leading goal scorer for the eighth time.
