Alex Ovechkin scores career goal no. 570, passes Joe Nieuwendyk for 12th place all-time on NHL PPG list
You would think after terrorizing almost every team in the NHL on the power play, Alex Ovechkin would not be left completely wide open by teams in his office.
Late in the second period, Ovechkin scored from the left face-off cirle, tying the Capitals and lowly Coyotes 2-2 late in the second period. Ovechkin also accomplished a bit of history in the process.
