Ovechkin noted the actions of his partner in the moment with his 740th goal in the NHL

Washington captain Alexander Ovechkin praised teammate Lars Eller for an assist against Florida.

In a 4-5 defeat to the Capitals, Ovechkin scored his 740th NHL goal. He is one goal away from Brett Hull (741), the 4th highest scorer in league history.

– Lars played great. He deliberately waited for me before leaving the puck for me, so I had a lot of time to sort out the moment, – the official website of the NHL quotes Ovechkin.

Wayne Gretzky is the leader in the NHL goalscorer rating with 894 goals in the NHL.
