Ovechkin Scores Twice To Set NHL Scoring Mark

Apr 03, 2008 10:26 PM EST

Alex Ovechkin?s record-setting goal was scored in such close quarters that it took some 20 minutes and a host of replay angles before he got credit for it. He left no doubt when he scored again, unleashing a blistering shot that put the Capitals one step closer to the playoffs.

Serenaded again with chants of ?M-V-P!? from the red-clad sellout crowd, Ovechkin broke Luc Robitaille?s single-season NHL record for most goals by a left wing with his 64th and 65th scores Thursday night to lead the Capitals to a 4-1 win over the Lightning, as reported by the Associated Press.
