212 - Number of games in which Alex Ovechkin has scored at least one power-play goal since arriving on the NHL scene back in 2005, including two in last night’s overtime win over the Rangers. That is far and away the most games with a power-play goal over the last 14 seasons, with Evgeni Malkin checking in at second place with PPGs in “just” 127 games.

With his two-spot last night, Ovechkin now also moves into a tie with former Cap Dino Ciccarelli for the ninth-highest power-play goal total in NHL history, picking up #231 and 232 against New York.
