The Washington Capitals battled their division rival New York Rangers in a back and forth contest on Wednesday night, but only one team could walk out with the victorious, full two points. That team would be your red clad Caps as they downed Hank and the bunch in the extra frame, 4-3.
The Caps out-shot the Rangers 38 to 32 and out-attempted them at five-on-five 48 to 41.
Alex Ovechkin now has 231 career power play goals.
The second most power play goals since he entered the league is Thomas Vanek with 134.
The difference between Ovechkin and Vanek is the same as Vanek and a bunch of guys tied for 185th place.
