Alex Ovechkin’s 767th goal moved him into sole possession of third place on the NHL’s all-time scoring list, and the Washington Capitals won in the shootout round for a 4-3 victory over the visiting New York Islanders on Tuesday.

With the score tied 2-2 at 15:02 of the third period, Evgeny Kuznetsov won a faceoff in New York’s end and quickly sent the puck to Ovechkin at the edge of the circle. The star forward blasted the shot past goalie Semyon Varlamov for his 37th goal of the season and his latest mark in the record books.
