210 - Number of even-strength goals scored by Alex Ovechkin on the road over the course of his career, including his tally in last night’s win over Calgary. That goal moved him past Mark Messier into seventh place all-time in even-strength road goals, and puts him just ten behind Marcel Dionne for sixth place in road goals of any type with 336 (which leads all active players by a wide margin).

For all his success on the power play over the years, Ovechkin has racked up plenty of goals at evens over the years, at home and on the road - his 412 even-strength tallies are 14th all-time and just three behind Jarome Iginla for 13th.

Let’s take another look at last night’s strike, shall we? Quite the beauty.
