Alex Ovechkin passed Jaromir Jagr for second all-time in shots. He now has 1,910 more shots than the next closest player since 2005.
Wayne Gretzky once said, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” Alex Ovechkin is the skating embodiment of this quote.
Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers, Ovechkin scored the 716th goal of his career and fired four shots on net. The four shots moved Ovi (5,639) past Jaromir Jagr (5,637) for second all-time on the NHL’s shots list.
