Alex Ovechkin scored his 49th goal of the season on Tuesday, which tied Brendan Shanahan with 656 career goals, good for 13th place on the all-time goal scoring list.

After he scored, fans at Capital One Arena were chanting ‘We want 50!’

“Next game,” Ovi said after the game. “It would be nice to get it but we still have five games. I have lots of chances to score tonight. I get one because last couple games I didn’t use my chances.”

Next up on the list is Luc Robitaille, who has  668, so Ovi will most likely be passing him early next season.
