30 - Number of empty-net goals scored by Alex Ovechkin over the course of his career. He’s held the franchise record in that department for some time, almost doubling the next player on the list (Mike Ridley potted 16 in 588 games as a Cap). He now moves into a tie for the most in the League since the start of the 2005-06 season, joining Eric Staal atop the pile.
