Alex Ovechkin passed Brett Hull for fourth in NHL goals when the forward scored No. 742 for the Washington Capitals against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena on Friday.

"It means a lot," Ovechkin said. "When you start playing hockey, when you come to the NHL, you never thought you'd be in that position with those names.

"It's a special moment with my parents, my wife, kids, obviously."
