Ovechkin becomes 20th ever to net 600 goals

Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin has become the 20th player in NHL history to reach 600 career goals, further cementing his status as one of the league's all-time best offensive talents.
The Capitals captain scored twice Monday night in Washington's 3-2 overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets to reach the milestone in his 990th regular-season game. No. 600 came 3 minutes, 53 seconds into the second period and marked his 42nd goal this season, which leads the NHL.
Capitals fans who have watched Ovechkin shine as the most productive goal scorer of the past decade-plus gave him a standing ovation for almost a minute after he reached the mark. Chants of "Ovi! Ovi!" continued as he waved from the bench in the moments after and during a video montage at the next timeout.
