Alex Ovechkin sets NHL record for most goals with one team

Alex Ovechkin set the NHL record for most goals scored with one franchise, netting his 787th career goal with the Washington Capitals to break a tie with Hockey Hall of Famer Gordie Howe's career total with the Detroit Red Wings.

The record-breaking goal came on home ice against the Arizona Coyotes Saturday night.

In the second period, Ovechkin posted his seventh goal of the season, a power-play tally with assists from Trevor van Riemsdyk and Anthony Mantha. Ovechkin tied Howe's mark Thursday night in Detroit when he netted his sixth goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.
