Ovechkin ties Yzerman for career goals; Caps top Isles 6-4

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) Alex Ovechkin has made a career out of scoring big goals in big moments. His latest milestone was no different.

Ovechkin had a hat trick for the second consecutive game to tie Steve Yzerman for ninth on the career goals list Saturday, and the Washington Capitals rallied with five goals in the third period for a 6-4 victory over the New York Islanders.

"To be honest with you, it's something special. It's history. Great names," said Ovechkin, who is now two goals short of Mark Messier for eighth all-time.
