Alex Ovechkin ties Capitals' all-time scoring record in loss to Coyotes

Monday November 3rd, 2014

It was a bittersweet Sunday for Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin. On one hand, he notched four points against the Coyotes. On the other, one of his turnovers in the defensive end turned into an Arizona goal in a 6-5 loss.

Among his four points was a goal that ended a six-game slump, his longest streak without a goal since a similarly long stretch from November 12-23 in 2011. He now sits at 825 points in his career, which ties him with Peter Bondra for Washington's all-time franchise lead.

Ovechkin is well-acquainted with Bondra's records, having passed his team mark for power-play goals last season with his 138th (he's now at 153). Bondra still holds the Caps' records for even-strength goals (303 to 271), game-winning goals (73 to 70), hat tricks (19 to 13) and shorthanded goals (32 to 4).
