Ovechkin broke the record in his 1,055th game, 193 games fewer than Fedorov played.“It’s history, and I passed all those legends,” Ovechkin said. “It’s pretty big and I appreciate everybody who do all work with me, my teammates, and it’s huge. When you start playing hockey and you came to the NHL Youth Sebastian Aho Jersey , you just have a dream to score one goal or two and now I’m No. 1 on the all-time Russian list.”Ovechkin and Fedorov played together with the Capitals in 2008 and 2009 and remain friends. Ovechkin said he spoke with Fedorov and is sure the Hockey Hall of Famer is happy he passed him for this record.“I knew eventually it’s going to come, but it’s pretty big,” Ovechkin said. “It’s pretty huge.

The 39-year-old Luongo, who stopped all 13 shots he faced in just over 32 minutes, needed help to skate off the ice.“He had some ice on his knee,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “I don’t know how serious (the injury is). Hopefully that’s not going to be a long-term thing. They’re going to reassess it and I’ll know more tomorrow.”James Reimer replaced Luongo and stopped 15 shots.“He’s a battler and he’s a workhorse,” Reimer said. “Obviously you saw the position he was in when someone fell on him and you could just tell that it wasn’t an injury you could stay in the game.”Luongo was also shaken up earlier in the second when he took a shot by Steven Stamkos off the mask.Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy made 42 saves in regulation. He made one save in the shootout and had another shot hit the post.“They’re not all going to be pretty Womens Victor Rask Jersey , but we’ll take it and we’ll move on,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said.The Lightning got a third-period, short-handed goal from Anthony Cirelli.Tampa Bay was held scoreless over the final 159:27 in the 2018 Eastern Conference Final in which eventual Stanley Cup champion Washington rebounded from a one-game deficit to win Games 6 and 7.Jacob MacDonald scored for the Panthers.
