Alex Ovechkin scores 700th NHL goal; David Ayres climbs off zamboni to win game for Carolina

Alex Ovechkin became only the eighth player to reach 700 goals in the Washington Capitals 3-2 defeat the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.
Tied the game at 2-2 if his one-timer ignited congratulations inside the Prudential Center and beat Mackenzie Blackwood.
The 34-year-old Russian might prove to be the largest risk yet to Wayne Gretzkys one time record of 894 goals if he handles to play another five seasons and meets Gretzkys strength and reached the landmark in his 1,144 th sport.
Gordie Howe (801 targets ), Jaromir Jagr (766), Brett Hull (741), Marcel Dionne (731), Phil Esposito (717) along with Mike Gartner (708) are other members of an extremely exclusive club.
I knew even if I didnt score today, we had 20 matches [left at the season]. It is pretty good business. I am delighted to be here, Ovechkin said.
However, we have to concentrate on different things. Right now, its important points for us and Sunday will be a major game [against the Pittsburgh Penguins]. I dont think the group was considering it too much.
The Devils had the last laugh with Damon Severson sealing victory with a goal less than two minutes in the end of law.
David Ayres has been the most unlikely of heroes for the Carolina Hurricanes in their 6-3 win over Maple Leafs in Toronto.
The 42-year-old, an emergency backup goalie, has been made to enter the match for Carolina in the second period when Petr Mrazek joined in sustaining a injury, starter James Reimer.
In such circumstances, the home group or the house venue usually provides an third goalie and the phone went out for Ayres, that pushes the ice-cleaning zamboni at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto and regularly confronts the Maple Leafs at practice as soon as an additional goalie is necessary.
He revealed for the much-vaunted crime of Toronto, recovering from allowing goals on the first two shots he faced to create eight rescue that were straight and lead the Hurricanes.
I believed Id be nervous if it happened. I was nervous for the whole next phase, said Ayres.
As you can tell, I couldnt stop a puck when I had to in the second. I told the boysIll be all set. Was keep breathing fine and slowly and unwind, the shots are going to come. I face these men all the time, the Leafs, at clinic, to be honest.
Warren Foegele scored for Carolina using their remaining objects coming from Teuvo Teravainen, Nino Niedereiter, Martin Necas along with Lucas Wallmark.
