Ovechkin looks to climb NHL scoring list as Caps meet Isles

Alex Ovechkin on Thursday became the second player to score 30 goals in each of his first 15 NHL seasons. His next goal will place him in the top-10 of the NHL's all-time goal-scoring list.

Ovechkin will get his first chance at tying Hall of Fame member Mario Lemieux for 10th all-time on the scoring list Saturday afternoon when the Washington Capitals visit the New York Islanders at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Ovechkin enters with 689 career goals, putting him one behind Lemieux for 10th all-time. He also is three behind Steve Yzerman for ninth all-time and five behind Mark Messier, who is eighth on the career list.
