Alex Ovechkin scored his 19th goal of the season a few moments ago. The power play goal was his 544th of his career, which ties with him the great Maurice 'The Rocket' Richard.

What's even more special is that Ovechkin did it in Montreal. The goal puts Ovechkin 29th on the all-time list.

The goal was also the 999th point of Ovechkin's career.

Congrats Ovie!
